More and more theatres are adapting to our strange new world and trying to reach audiences at home. These round ups seem to be very popular with families so we are back with a new one! See newly released theatre shows below:
We Are Stars (narrated by Andy Serkis)
What are we made of? Where did it all come from? We Are Stars, the National Space Centre's award winning show will answer the all-important questions we all have and will allow kids the opportunity to explore the secrets of our cosmic chemistry. Andy Serkis narrates the piece as the voice of the Time Master. Catch it this Friday (24th April) at 6pm.
