Puss in Space
Friday 12 to Saturday 20 December
Presented by Hotbuckle productions and Riverhouse.
For ages 3 – 300!
We all know the story about the cat in the chemist (Puss in Boots.. get it?), but how many of you have heard about the puss who went to space? What will happen when our favourite feline encounters aliens from another planet and of course the evil Moonpig? Will Riverhouse’s favourite policemen Reg and Stan help in any way? Or will they, as usual, make a complete hash of everything (including their lines!). With live music and real stars (painted on the set).
Countdown to Christmas at Riverhouse with the Hotbuckle crew as we blast off into the fun filled mayhem that is ‘Puss in Space!’
Friday 12 to Saturday 20 December 6.30pm
