A BAFTA award-winning CBeebies children’s TV show is bringing a new musical theatre experience to stage for its first major UK theatre tour, and it’s coming to OUR THEATRE! 

In the Night Garden Live begins a tour of UK theatres in 2019 and will be performed at the Embassy Theatre, Skegness on Wednesday and Thursday, July 24-25.

Audiences are invited to take a journey into the magical world of In the Night Garden and experience all the enchanting characters brought to life on stage.

Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy, Makka Pakka and friends will star in a specially-written new story for the entire family using full-size costumes and puppets with music and dancing.

Oliver Seadon executive producer said: “When we made In the Night Garden Live we never imagined it would run for ten years and that over a million visitors would come to see it.

“It’s incredibly exciting now to be making a brand-new show and taking it into theatres all over the country.

“This will be the first time that audiences get to see In the Night Garden Live in their local theatre.”

In the Night Garden Live is written by Helen Eastman (writer of Bing Live) and based on the Ragdoll television series created by Andrew Davenport.

The show is directed by Royal Ballet choreographer and director Will Tuckett, who added: “Children know these characters so well, much better than we ever might think.

“They see them as proper friends – when they appear on stage live they are seeing friends liberated from the television or tablet. “They are there, waving at them.

“Taking your child to see them live on stage is an extraordinary experience – it’s a genuinely heartwarming and truly magical thing and makes me love my job as much as I do.”

Show times: July 24 1pm and 4pm; July 25 10am and 1pm.
