Children aged three to six are invited to get lost in a beautiful world of polar bears and penguins when Slot Machine Theatre bring ‘Miki’ to Square Chapel Centre for the Arts, Halifax on Friday and Saturday, January 4 and 5 (2pm and 4pm).
An adaptation of the million-selling children’s story of the same name by acclaimed artist Stephen Mackay, this show creates a visual world to match the stunning illustrations in the original book.
Set a long way away, in a place where there is always snow, young audiences will be captivated by the story of a little girl and her friends, Penguin and Polar Bear, all trying to make their dreams come true.
It’s midwinter eve a night when wishes can become real. Together the three friends wish for a tree and for fairy lights to make the tree sparkle, the one thing missing is a star that will shine brightly forever. With that they set off on a magical adventure that takes them deep below the snow on an adventure into an enchanting underwater world where they meet all kinds of weird and wonderful creatures.
Told in a quirky style with intricate puppetry, singing and performance ‘Miki’ is a visual feast and inspiring story about friendship, courage and adventure.
The show lasts 50 minutes and tickets are £8 in advance (£9 on the day) – book online at www.squarechapel.co.uk or call the box office on 01422 349422.
