I Spy With My Little Eye is the perfect introduction to live theatre for little ones. This event is ideal for ages 2+ and even gives audiences the opportunity to have a photo opportunity with the cast!

So consider yourself cordially invited to join us for what promises to be a truly magical day of fun and laughter, complete with an amazing birthday treasure hunt, all your favourite sing along songs and lots of interactive games – including birthday girl Molly’s favourite… “I Spy With My Little Eye!”
