Old Man and the River has received unanimous praise from children, parents, grandparents, and teachers for its artistry and its story of newfound friendship. This show features interactive pre-show and post-show audience engagement created especially for this age group.

This is a family show for children aged three years and up.

There are 6 public performances of Old Man and The River at The Assembly Hall on December 15th and 16th at 11am, 2pm and 4:30pm.

A grumpy old man lives in his little house in the woods by the river. Every day is the same and he likes it this way, until one day, a magical creature leaps into his world and everything changes! This beautifully designed puppetry work performed without words to an enchanting musical score reveals a world where rivers sing, trees laugh, and curious dragonflies come to visit. 

With its themes of friendship, communication, play, adjusting to change, Theatre Direct’s Old Man and the River is perfect for the youngest theatregoer.
