The Flying Machine

‘Welcome aboard the flying machine and get ready for a wondrous adventure! Become a member of the crew as we set off on a journey through the skies exploring new worlds and characters,  engaging with sensory props, stories and songs from across the globe and beyond. The skies are our limits!’

This interactive performance invites our audience to become the crew, flapping the wings, working the controls and steering the captain’s wheel!   Led by the musical Captain and dramatic First Mate adventures explore fascinating new destinations both real and imaginary.  Performed through an exciting mix of drama and song, this show brings to life your imagination and sense of adventure in a fantastic multi sensory experience.
