Under the Rainbow

Over the sea to land of possibility...

4 - 28 May

Adventure Theatre Ages
3 - 6

With evocative music, puppetry and a beautiful transformative set we gently tell the story of one woman’s courageous journey. As she crosses land and sea, she befriends a turtle and a colourful bird of paradise, discovering a plentiful island that gives her hope for the future.

In Polka’s intimate Adventure Theatre, children will feel part of the journey, with opportunities to interact with the performer on her remarkable journey, before she builds her new home on stage.

Running time: 40 minutes

This new Polka production has been developed as part of the Small size Wide Eyes project. Artists from 15 countries have each created an original piece of theatre inspired by children’s thirst for knowledge and discovery. You can enjoy another Wide Eyes show at Polka between 7 – 11 June when we welcome Théâtre de la Guimbarde from Belgium with Cache-Cache which explores the emotion and excitement of the game hide-and-seek.
