The Night the Moonchild Smiled

Wednesday 12th December, 2018 10:30am

Tel: 01723 370541



Stephen Joseph Theatre
YO11 1JW

Betsy Moon is quite a grump
The “grown ups” always say
“Come on Betsy do cheer up”
But Betsy will not play.

“Oh Betsy straighten up your crown”
The King and Queen request
“Turn that frown upside down
You’re the moodiest Princess”.

The King and Queen decide one night
To make their moonchild grin
They’ll need some help with their plight
Or they’ll throw her in the bin!

A lovely, silly tale of a moody moonchild and how the moon folk are brought together to make her smile. With all the usual Tiny Time Tales fun and interaction.

Alice in Wonderland

Wednesday 12th December, 2018 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Tel: 01723 370541



Stephen Joseph Theatre
YO11 1JW

Once upon a time there was a little girl who ran free in the wilds of her imagination, meeting Cheshire Cats, Mad Hatters, White Rabbits and any amount of talking cards. Her Wonderland was real, and she’d never forget it.

Until she grew up and did.

This year, the team that brought you the smash hit Christmas shows A (Scarborough) Christmas Carol and Pinocchio invite you to Boyes on a crowded Christmas Eve, as Alice falls down the rabbit hole once again to find she’s still a child in Wonderland… but Wonderland has changed.

And not for the better.

Can she save her wonderful friends? Will she get back to her kids, who she left by a fire extinguisher near the stock room? And can you get decent phone reception at the Mad Hatter’s house?

Daft, exciting and filled with brilliant songs, Alice in Wonderland is a delight for all the family, and their rabbits.*

*The rabbit thing might not be true. Who knows what rabbits are into? Leave them behind.
