Sherman Theatre presents The Magic Porridge Pot – a fun new version of the classic The Brothers Grimm tale. Written by award-winning playwright Alun Saunders, with songs and live music, this is the perfect trip to the theatre for families this Autumn.

In a village on the edge of the Enormous Forest, Aggie is always trying to help her mother and the other villagers, but often ends up just making a mess. Whilst on one of her adventures Aggie is given a magical pot which makes tasty porridge, but when her mother tries her hand at it and can’t make the pot stop, the town is filled with porridge and Aggie’s help is really needed…..by everyone.

Following last year’s highly successful production of The Emperor’s New Clothes, Sherman Theatre is delighted to be bringing this much-loved story to The Welfare.  A relaxed atmosphere perfect for the littlest of theatregoers and their grown-ups, The Magic Porridge Pot is overflowing with songs, music and fun for all the family, especially those under 7.

The show is just 50 minutes long, so plenty of time to get home for bed! The show is performed in the round, which means that the performers are in the middle and the audience sit around them on all sides. The children sit on cushions on the floor so that they are really close to the action; but don’t worry, there are chairs for grownups and more cautious children and you are welcome to sit on the floor with your child if that increases their enjoyment of the show.

The Magic Porridge Pot is at The Welfare on 8th November, tickets for the show are available to purchase online or by calling the box office on 01639 843163. Tickets are priced just £5 per person. We hope to see you and your little ones soon!
