Fly High | March 21
Fly High is a delightful production with buckets of charm. Being a sweetly detailed small-scale adventure, kids can sit back, relax, and enjoy a wondrous adventure together with the characters of the show. Fly High is about the characters, Poppy and Mo, who dream of flying. When they meet each other in the park, they soon become friends and decide to embark on a crazy ambition of building their own flying machine. This is a combination of physical theatre, comedy, original songs, and puppetry that makes for a whirlwind tour through the basics of aerodynamics and friendship.
The performance that will show this March 21 is a Relaxed Performance (RP) which is designed to allow patrons a more ‘relaxed’ theatre environment. Patrons who may benefit from this performance include those on the Autistic spectrum, living with Dementia, and patrons with diverse learning and communication needs.
