Eco Drama in association with Platform presents The Whirlybird, an uplifting theatre show for children aged 3-7, featuring movement, music, bird song, puppetry and lots of things that spin!
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...
A curious creature, ricketie-racketie on ground but in flight, a wildlife spectacle – a blizzard of wings, perfect elliptical twirls, a mass of orange and browns and a cacophony of sound!
The Whirlybird is a funny, playful and moving piece of theatre 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 and set and costume by Claire Halleran, The Whirlybird draws inspiration from the natural world to celebrate diversity and uniqueness and the wonder of flight.
Praise for The Worm - An Underground Adventure, Eco Drama’s previous production for children aged 3-7:
“…manages to keep its audience of tinies enthralled simply through some excellent storytelling…a sweet little piece which will give younger children a gentle introduction to ecology but, more importantly, keep them engaged and amused for the whole 60 minutes.”
