Then look no further, as internationally acclaimed children’s theatre company, Blunderbus, are bringing their new production of The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark to Notts.

Based on the classic 1968 children’s book by Jill Tomlinson, this funny, reassuring tale about Plop the baby Barn Owl, and his fear of darkness has been created especially for small people aged three to seven years old(and grown-ups who sleep with the big light on).

With an irresistible blend of live music, handcrafted puppets and spellbinding storytelling, the talented Blunderbus actor-musicians bring this well-loved tale to life for a new generation of theatregoers.

Audiences will share Plop’s journey into the night-time world of campfires, fireworks, starry nights and moonlit adventures.

As he tumbles out of his nest and lands with an almighty thud in the village below, Plop begins a voyage of discovery with an array of new friends.

The handcrafted puppets of Orion the cat, the Grandma and a plethora of woodland animals are truly breath-taking and add to the company’s critically acclaimed reputation.

The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark will be performed at Nottingham Theatre Royal on Saturday 18th August at 11am and 2pm.

Tickets are £10 and a family ticketis £32 for four tickets.
