Children’s Entertainment

Join Deedee and her best friend Tobias (a little mouse with a big squeak!) as they help a mysterious and hungry stranger create the yummiest, slurpiest, scrumptiously, deliciously, nom-nom-nom-iest soup of them all!  

It won’t be an easy task but, with the stranger’s help and a wishing pebble or two, Deedee and Tobias are sent on a magical journey to collect ingredients from the Mountain Dragon, the Queen Bee and the Monkey King.

This is a fantastical story of sharing and caring that children of all ages will love, all set within Bolton’s fabulous Albert Halls. 


Children and families will begin their magical theatrical journey as soon as they step into the building, where they will be met by some of the colourful cast members who will join them in pre-show craft activities.  

Will your child choose to be the Mountain Dragon, the Queen Bee, the Monkey King or little Tobias the mouse – with four fantastic face masks to decorate they’ll be spoilt for choice?!  Each child will also be given their own wishing stone and will be able pick up a song sheet so that they can join in with the show!

The cast will then lead children to the theatre for the main event – expect song, dance, music and laughter – with a few surprises along the way!

Each performance (including craft activities) will last for one hour. 

All children must be accompanied by an adult (maximum 3 children per adult)
