The Whirlybird

Early Years Theatre

A funny, playful and uplifting show featuring movement, music, birdsong and puppetry and lots of things that spin!

Set in a cosy nest, two birds look skyward and get ready for their maiden flight. While flying comes easy for Bird, Whirlybird just can’t get the hang of it. After many failed attempts, inspiration is found in a very special flying seed…

The Whirlybird is about learning to fly, encouraging one another and finding joy and inspiration in nature. Created by Scotland’s leading eco-friendly theatre company with a beautiful music score by award winning composer Greg Sinclair the Whirlybird draws inspiration from the natural world to celebrate diversity, uniqueness and the wonder of flight.

Suitable for children aged 3 – 7 and their families. After the performance children are invited to stay and play with The Whirlybird cast.

A joyful celebration of the wonder of nature
