The show sees Spot celebrate his birthday with his friends, Steve the monkey, Helen the hippo and Tom the crocodile.

Spot’s parents, Sally and Sam, plus special guest entertainer, Marco the rabbit, will be there too and the audience can join in the fun with music, songs, games and stories.

Children are welcome to arrive at the theatre dressed for a party, and Spot would love to receive homemade birthday cards from them.

Spot’s Birthday Party stars Matthew Tanner as Spot, Benjamin Wells as Sam/Marco, Jenanne Redman as Sally, Alex Bloomer as Steve, Adam Ryan as Tom and Elizabeth Oliver-Kirk as Helen.

Director David Wood has taken Eric Hill’s delightful tale and adapted it into a theatrical treat for families.
