Popular CBeebies show at Northampton's Deco Theatre promises to be a 'laugh-out-loud treat' for children
Twirlywoos Live! will become one of the first children's shows to return as theatres begin to reopen
A popular children's TV show on CBeebies will be brought to life at Northampton's Deco Theatre next week.
The characters of the wonderful world of Twirlywoos - including Toodloo, Great BigHoo, Chickedy, Chick and Peekaboo - will set sail for the Deco Theatre's stage on Friday, May 28 and Saturday, May 29 to mark the beginning of their summer tour.
Featuring all the favourite characters from the hit TV show, which was first broadcast on CBeebies in 2015, the show's organisers said that audiences can expect mischief, music and plenty of surprises as the Twirlywoos welcome young fans aboard their Big Red Boat for a theatrical adventure.
The Twirlywoos are four small, bird-like characters who are inquisitive, enthusiastic and always looking to learn something new about the world. Ever curious, they seek adventure and fun wherever they go. Whether in the real world or on their big red boat, they love to hide, imitate and be surprised as they discover new things.
Twirlywoos is co-created by Anne Wood, who has devised shows including Teletubbies, and Steve Roberts, who - with Anne - co-created the Bafta-winning CBeebies series Dipdap.
Twirlywoos Live! is brought to the stage by MEI Theatrical, whose recent productions include CBeebies' Sarah and Duck Live on Stage and the smash-hit production of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show.
It is written by Zoe Bourn, who has brought to life some of the world’s best-loved children’s titles including Thomas and Friends and Fireman Sam Live!.
