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.
Ga Ga Theatre will be touring the production to London Picturehouse Cinemas with the aim of making high-quality children's theatre accessible on a local basis and creating a fun, stress-free experience for families and carers.
You can catch Up & Down at Clapham Picturehouse, Greenwich Picturehouse, Hackney Picturehouse, Stratford East Picturehouse, The Ritzy, Brixton.
The play brings to life the magical story of a penguin who dreams of flying and a boy who tries to help him. Ignoring the boy's advice, the penguin leaves his friend to go searching for a chance to get his feet off the ground, but when the penguin needs him most, the boy is there to catch him.

The environment was good, having a mixture of cinema and theatre was great and the children (and adults) love it. My toddler loved it so much that we didn't leave the room until the music stopped :). We have a flyer from the event which until now gets played around de house by my toddler trying to replicate "up and down". Very cute. Very good story. Highly recommend!
I visited this show with my six month old. Despite being worried that she was maybe a bit small, she enjoyed the music and interaction- the actors came up into the seats with props, including a giant parachute which was appreciated by my baby! I'd recommend this for anyone looking for something a bit different during half term. It's only 45 minutes and suitable for all children. It was also a very relaxed atmosphere because of the children, so if you have a restless toddler or baby, they are not going to mind at all!
I visited this show with my kids (6 and 3) and we all loved it.
It's a wonderful and touching story about the importance of friendship. We all have big dreams and try our best to reach them, but sometimes it may require something in return, like leaving your best friends (as it's been shown in this story).
My 6 yrs old child was so happy when boy and penguin met each other in the circus and boy caught the penguin when she was falling down.
My both kids were really into it and got excited to wave the giant parachute up and down and pass around. I saw babies around us dancing to music.
A lot of nice music; the illustrations in the background makes the show "3D". Actors also did their job very well.
I would highly recommend everyone to visit this lovely show.
