New Children’s Show At Polka Theatre

A wonderful new children’s show is opening at the Polka Theatre. Tidy tells the story of an adorable badger character and is based on a much loved children’s book. Let’s find out all the details you need to know….

What can I expect when watching Tidy at Polka Theatre?

A co-production between Polka Theatre and Theatr Iolo; Tidy is based on the much-loved  children’s book by author and illustrator, Emily Gravett. A gentle but cautionary tale about  the value of the world around us and what happens if we don’t look after it. We think children will be mesmerised by the performance which features beautiful puppets, original music and a touch of silliness. It is recommended for children from 3 – 7 years old.  

The story follows Pete the badger likes everything to be neat and tidy. The flowers, the leaves, even the  other animals. But, when autumn comes, he gets a little bit carried away with cleaning up  the forest and accidently destroys his own home!

Polka Theatre’s Artistic Director and Joint Chief Executive Helen Matravers said, “I cannot wait to share the magic and hilarity of Pete the Badger’s  adventure with Polka audiences. There is something in this story for every 3-7 year old to  enjoy – from wonderful puppetry, to incredibly catchy songs and a big hug for our precious  planet – the creative team are bringing Emily Gravett’s story to life with exceptional  attention to detail and it’s fantastic that Polka and Theatr Iolo are able to team up to bring it  to our main stage.”
