Up & Down

Hackney wide

Ga Ga Theatre, a new theatre company for children, will launch its first ever production this autumn - an adaptation of Up & Down by award-winning children's author Oliver Jeffers at Hackney Picturehouse (see website for all 6 venues across London). The production is suitable for babies and children up to the age of 7.

The new production will bring to life the magical story of a penguin who dreams of flying and the boy who tries to help him. Ignoring the boy's advice that it is impossible, the penguin leaves his friend to go searching for a chance to get his feet off the ground and, when the penguin needs him most, the boy is there to catch him. Up & Down is a funny yet touching story about the importance of friendship and reaching for one's dreams, which speaks to all ages.

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.

    I have had a sneak preview in the rehearsals as I know the producers...Both my kids and I were captivated the whole way through! Ga Ga are doing something completely different by integrating live theatre with beautiful projections based on the book. I cannot wait to see the final product in Hackney Picturehouse next month!
