Join us for a magical, fun-filled story all about the importance of friendship, specially written for 3 to 7 year olds. Featuring a lively mix of singing, live music and puppetry, this beautifully atmospheric show invites your pupils right into the story, with plenty of opportunities for participation, jokes, songs and dancing.
Poor Farmer MacNeep…it’s the snowiest, sleetiest, windiest night of the year and two of his favourite sheep are missing. Maybe they’re trapped in the snow – oh no! But these aren’t just any silly old sheep. This clever pair have built themselves a lovely, cosy cave in the snow and are waiting out the wild winter weather, snug in their warm, woolly jumpers.
Farmer MacNeep is nearly ready to start the search with his clever side kick, Flossie the sheep dog, and a host of other farmyard friends – but we need your help too... So don’t be sheepish – book your tickets now!
Running time approx. 45 minutes
