Magical – an ideal introduction to the theatre for children

The Stage

A little gem! ...Very creative and so much fun. Our daughter couldn't stop laughing out loud. And even us adults had to giggle. The soft toy animals were just too cute! A great little team of actors who put a huge smile on our faces and got it perfectly right for their young audience. Heart-warmingly good!


This festive season, enjoy Slot Machine Theatre's heart-warming live stage show of the classic children’s book by Nick Butterworth -featuring gorgeous puppetry and jolly songs to sing along to.

As Percy the Park Keeper goes to sleep after a hard day sweeping leaves, he’s woken by a knock at his door. Who could it be on a night like this?

It’s Squirrel, cold and shivering on the porch and looking for somewhere warm to sleep. There’s nowhere warmer than Percy’s bed – but it soon becomes a fur and feather-filled squeeze as all the freezing park animals come in from the cold. Fox, Badger, Hedgehog and friends warm their collective paws (and claws) in Percy’s home until they, too, are disturbed by a little something burrowing into the hut from below!

A snuggly, heart-warming story, with songs to sing along to, furry puppet friends to meet and blankets to be tucked up in, One Snowy Night is great fun for younger children!

Percy the Park Keeper popped into MAC recently for a visit with Duck, Rabbit and Mouse ahead of the main show - watch his message below!
