Troll-Tastic Terror for Families This January at The Atkinson

Troll-Tastic Terror for Families This January at The Atkinson

In the middle of the night there is a noise – a snuffling and a shuffling and a splintering of wood. A line of troll-prints lead out the door, across the lawn and into the deep, dark forest.
When a grotesque gang of greedy trolls steal all the village’s pets (including Nikki’s favourite goldfish, Great Bumbleduke the Third), who is going to come to the poor animals’ rescue?
This high energy, comedy adventure show sees performance poet Dommy B (CBeebies The Rhyme Rocket) collaborating with live music by multi-instrumentalist Sergio Volumen. Directed by Kevin Dyer (Writers’ Guild of Great Britain ‘Best Play for Children and Young People’), created in association with Action Transport Theatre, Expect lyrics, laughs and lots of troll-tastic terror!
“The stuff of golden childhood memories”The Daily Telegraph
“From the moment he started to speak we were totally captivated. The incredible way he uses words, the expression and energy of the delivery and the subject matter made him irresistible.” Manchester Evening News

About The Atkinson
The Atkinson is Southport’s beautiful new home for music, theatre, art, poetry, literature and history, right in the middle of Lord Street in Southport. Significant investment has been made in refurbishing the stunning 19th century buildings, to create a really welcoming multi art-form venue with a strong contemporary feel.
The Atkinson offers an exciting and varied destination for families, cultural tourists and arts enthusiasts alike, with a full day and night time offer. Wile the day away visiting the new shop, that sells gifts and contemporary crafts from regional makers and then relax in the Bakery, choosing from a selection of artisan bread sandwiches, cakes and sharing platters. You can even take little bit of The Atkinson home with you from the delicatessen. Wonder through the major exhibitions and see performances from some of the UK’s foremost musicians, actors, performers and companies, films, family activities and much more.
