Paper Moon square.jpg

Paper Moon is a beautiful and memorable adventure show for under 5s specially created for Cumbernauld Theatre by the acclaimed Shaper/Caper.

The moonlight is beautiful, shining across the bedroom floor as Poppy Diddle dozes off. But is all as calm as it seems? Suddenly, Poppy wakes up to discover that the MoonMoo (the cow that jumped over the moon) has got stuck on the Moon! Poppy’s mission is clear! And she really needs your help to rescue MoonMoo!

Will you be Poppy’s friend at Astronaut School and help her build paper rockets to get to space?  5-4-3-2-1-BLAST OFF!

Join Poppy and her dog Peppy on this wonderful adventure as she launches across the canvas sky, at the speed of light, towards the Paper Moon.

Throughout the show, there are lots of opportunities for children and adults alike to join in Poppy’s journey through song and movement and we actively welcome you to join us throughout so that you and your wee one have the best time ever together!

 

Performances

Paper Moon will be presented at Cumbernauld Theatre from 6th to 22nd December (30 performances).
