A festive adventure for 3 to 5 year olds


Dear Family


I’ve arrived safe and sound in Scotland and am looking forward to a wonderful winter holiday! I’ve even bought some tartan boots to fit in! Wish you were here x

A new, interactive musical adventure for 3 to 5 year olds, Platypus in Boots is created by writer and theatre-maker Martin O’Connor, and Rachel Drury, creator and composer of our ground-breaking shows for babies and toddlers – BabyOand SensoryO.

Sydney the Platypus has travelled all the way from Australia to visit Glasgow and see snow for the first time. But it’s not easy being a tourist, especially when you look a little different and can’t understand the local lingo. All in all he’s a bit of a fish out of water, in desperate need of some friends. Come and help him find his way around the city and make his holiday one to remember!

A fun-filled mix of music, comedy and puppets, Platypus in Boots is based on the misunderstandings that can come from words – but is ultimately a celebration of differences. With a host of Glasgow characters, snowball fights and a Brussels Sprout Von Trapp sing-along, it’s Christmas fun, but not quite as we know it…
