FLIT, FLAP & FLY
Get ready to take flight for the very first time.
Young children and their big people are invited on a squawking adventure inside the nest of a unique bird family.
Flit, Flap & Fly follows a young chick’s frantic and funny journey towards independence, and her relationship with her fine-singing single father.
“The touching tale of a baby bird learning to spread her wings... pure theatrical joy”
**** The Stage

'The children showed a very high level of engagement in the show and were completely mesmerised in the world. We were moved by the participation of the children and response the performers gave to the children's comments and actions, weaving them into the story. The children have been full of talk about the show and speculating about the nature of the birds. Our children with English as an additional language particularly enjoyed the show.' - Primary School Teacher, Bath
'A joy to watch... as were the audience's reactions!' - Venue Manager, Somerset
'Thank you for the gorgeous, charming Flit, Flap & Fly today at the farm. I am still grinning. Total magic.' - Mum, Bristol
