Join us this Christmas for Luna, a magical first time theatre experience about friendship, the moon and being brave in the dark for 2-5 year olds and their families.

Luna is bored up in the sky with no-one to play with. Although she is surrounded by stars, they never quite understand her – it’s very lonely being the only moon.

One night, as she’s racing among the stars, she spots a young boy hiding from the shadows in his bedroom. Billy and his favourite toy, Pig, don’t like dark and do all they can to distract themselves from the scary shadows.

Luna decides to slide down from the sky to make friends with Billy. Together they go on a wondrous adventure of light and dark to help him overcome his fear of the night time.

With original live music this captivating play about friendship and bravery is a wonderful introduction to theatre for young children.

Miranda Thain

Original Writer

Miranda Thain is Artistic Producer of Theatre Hullabaloo, one of the UK’s leading theatre companies creating original work for children and young people.

Over the last 16 years, she has produced more than 40 shows for, by and with children and young people and worked for companies including tutti frutti productions, M6 Theatre Company and Konflux Theatre in Education. In 2003, she completed an MA in Applied Theatre.

She joined Theatre Hullabaloo (then CTC Theatre) in 2007 and has led the company’s rebrand to Theatre Hullabaloo and its artistic and learning programmes since 2008. In 2017, Theatre Hullabaloo opened The Hullabaloo, a new purpose designed venue for children and families in Darlington.

Miranda serves on the boards of Creative Darlington, North East Cultural Partnership (chairing the children and young people’s group) and chairs the Early Years thematic group for Tees Valley Cultural Education Partnership.

“Theatre for children and young people should strive to be sophisticated and playful. Theatre Hullabaloo aims to offer them a rich palette of creativity that at least equals, and often exceeds, the best adults have on offer.”
