About the Show

Great for Ages 1 to 5!

A tender, uplifting pantomime show for the little ones (and the big ones too). Sweet, inventive and packed with physical comedy, this play explores the power of friendship. With a little imagination and acceptance, one lonely person discovers companionship with the help of a red balloon.

Running time: Approximately 30 minutes.

The WOW Factor:

This show for our very youngest audiences is a great introduction to live theatre. The venue is kid-friendly, with nearly a 30 year track record of presenting theatre for young audiences the entire family can enjoy together.


* – a phone transaction fee applies for orders by phone. 
** – ticketing fees are $1 more at the door than by booking in advance
