New from Rhubarb for 2018/19The boy who wanted to fly poster
A brand new touring theatre show
about a boy, a bed, and a brilliant book!

The boy who wanted to fly! – AVAILABLE TO BOOK NOW!

New Theatre Show

Billy is fed-up, and perhaps just a tiny bit scared.
He’s stuck in a hospital room with drab white walls,
nasty tasting medicine and lots of busy grown-ups
with not enough patience for this little patient. It’s miserable.

But all that’s about to change…

A mysterious lady, pushing a trolley of toys, trundles through the ward and leaves an old tattered book on Billy’s bed. Little does Billy know that the book is his ticket to a whole world of adventure! Pulled into the pages, he’ll be transported far from his bed into strange new worlds and make the journey of a lifetime.

Join Billy, and family performance specialists Rhubarb Theatre, on their latest quest, as they discover the healing power of stories and try to prove that laughter is the best medicine!

Following the fantastic success of the time travelling, Sidney’s Shed, Rhubarb Theatre present a brand-new show – bursting with imagination, dance, music and a healthy dose of Rhubarb magic!
