Family Theatre Shows during the Easter Holidays


The Easter Holidays are a great opportunity to book a theatre trip and with so many great shows on locally, I've rounded them all up in one guide.

Don't forget if you've got your own budding starlet, there are a number of Holiday Clubs to unlock their creativity in the Holiday Clubs & Classes section:

The Three Bears at Stockwood Discovery Centre, Luton

Deep in the forest live Mammy, Daddy and Baby Bear. Each day the Three Bears head into the woods to collect interesting things to re-use in their home. Soon their cosy house is turned upside down by a colourful whirlwind that threatens to sit in their chairs, eat their porridge and sleep in their beds. It's Goldilocks! Bring your bears and join us for an adventure in the woods, with original music, puppets and a tale you thought you knew. A friendly and fun theatre experience for children aged 6 and under and their grown-ups.

Dogs Don't Do Ballet at Stockwood Discovery Centre, Luton
Sat 13th April 2024 11:30am & 2pm
Biff is not like ordinary dogs. He likes moonlight. And music. And walking on his tiptoes.
You see, Biff doesn't think he's a dog, Biff thinks he's a ballerina...
The sublime and the ridiculous combine in this hilarious story of a small dog with a big personality and even bigger dreams, brought to life using beautiful puppets, well-loved ballet music and dazzling comedy. This play is based on the original book Dogs Don't Do Ballet © 2010 text by Anna Kemp, illustrations by Sara Ogilvie. First published in the United Kingdom by Simon and Schuster UK Ltd.
