Family Fun Shows at the Kenton This Half Term

The Kenton theatre have got some great family shows on this half term – the incredible Mr Bubbles and The Dong With the Luminous Nose puppet show.

Join Mr Bubbles on Thursday 28 October at 2.00pm with his extraordinary soap bubbles in all shape and sizes. Enjoy bouncy bubbles, bubbles inside bubbles, smoke bubbles, square bubbles, giant bubbles and even fire bubbles! The Bubble Show is a unique blend of magic, storytelling and bubble art!

Actor, storyteller and Guinness World Bubble Record holder, Eran The Bubble Man is one of the top bubble artists in the world and brings you an interactive, fun, international award-winning bubble extravaganza!

The Dong With The Luminous Nose puppet show based on Edward Lear’s nonsense poem is on Sunday 31 October at 2.00pm. The story is about Edward who is a bit of an oddball.  He is a shy and troubled boy always watching the horizon, waiting for something to happen. Then one day “the Jumblies” arrive, and his life is turned upside down… then shaken about a bit… and then a bit more!

With a huge and colourful cast of abstract and figurative puppets, this absurd take on Lear’s nonsense classic explores that difficult age between being a child and becoming an adult.

Dancing chairs, a troublesome telephone and a swarm of shape-shifters all play their part in this tale of a lonely boy who has difficulty facing up to the facts.

The Guardian said, “This is a deliciously visceral experience that leaves the young audience with their skin tingling and their curiosity piqued.”
