mole and gecko: The show!
by simon mole and gecko
A live rap musical for all the family this October half-term.
A mole and a gecko are starting a journey
With songs and with poetry too.
A quest for adventure – a quest with a duck!
And all that they’re missing is YOU!
Mole sings songs and lives at the edge of the water. Gecko likes rap and lives on the warm rock. These unlikely friends are about to set off on a journey down the river on a boat with no name, but they need your help…
Mole and Gecko is an interactive rap musical that the audience (that’s you!) help create. Join in with our unlikely pair as they make up new songs, tell stories and meet a host of unusual characters.
With loads of laughs and jokes throughout, this show is perfect for under 8s (and their grown-ups too).
Theatremaker Matthew Bellwood will also be running creative workshops before and after performances of Mole and Gecko: The Show!, so you can create your own puppets for the show – and even have a go at making your own short films! Workshops will begin at 1.15pm before the show.
We operate a strict policy of fun, friendly and relaxed at all our venues – so come ready to shout out ideas and get involved in the fun.
