Calling all junior astronauts: join New Writing North & Sage Gateshead as they blast off on a superadventure into space
with Bob, the man on the Moon. Adapted from the popular picture book by Simon Bartram, Man on the Moon is a theatre production with live music, brought to you by the team that created The Worst Princess and My Granny is a Pirate. Bob has a very special job as a caretaker and tour guide on the Moon. He knows practically everything there is to know about the lunar landscape, and if there is one thing Bob is sure about, it is that there’s no such thing as aliens. Then again, who could be making all that mess? Find out as you sing and dance along in a show that is out of this world. Suitable for under 7s and their families. This event is sponsored by Specsavers.
