A tasty theatre adventure for families

Posted onPosted on 2nd Feb

Children are invited to ‘Run, run as fast as they can’ to catch up with the Gingerbread Man when he leaps into Create Theatre later this month.

For families wanting to discover some half-term fun, West Nottinghamshire College’s Derby Road-based theatre, has the answer. Hiccup Theatre will be showing two performances of The Gingerbread Man on Monday, 19 February – at 11am and 2pm.

The cheeky ginger-flavoured hero will be setting off on the biggest adventure of his life. Out of the kitchen, through the town and across the fields all the way to the river while trying to avoid the sly old fox!

The show, which featured at Derby Theatre over Christmas, is suitable for age three and upwards. It’s a brand new version of the classic tale, featuring live music, tasty story-telling and fun activities for children both before and after the performances.

Tickets can be purchased by calling 01623 413363 or visiting

Adult tickets are £8, children £6 and a special family ticket for £25 enables two adults and two children to the performance or one adult and three children.
