Lightbox Theatre is a professional theatre company and registered charity that presents stories that are untold or overlooked.
In October 2018 we present the Blue Bird, a charming show for children aged 4-11 and their families. Touring to London, Bath, Bristol, Worcester and Manchester.
One wintery evening Tyltyl wakes to find a hump-back figure in his bedroom. She is obviously a fairy. Tyltyl must find the bluebird that makes people happy. And he must do so before morning. Tyltyl doesn't know about bluebirds, or where he might find one but joined by his faithful pets the search begins...
The Blue Bird is Maurice Maeterlinck’s classic fairy-tale about happiness, perception and seeing the extraordinary in our everyday. Directed by Anna Marsland (resident director of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time) this is a visually charming and magical show for young and old alike.
This production is a 60-minute family show that uses a cast of four to create the magic and mystery of a young child’s quest into strange, fantastical and dangerous worlds to find the blue bird of happiness.
