Captivatingly told through original music, lasers and projections, ZOOOM takes youngsters on a journey to help a lost star find its way home.

This charming interactive experience for children and their families begins at home, where you are invited to bring ‘a piece of dark’ along. Upon arrival, your dark is exchanged for your own personal light – a little spark that will keep you safe and guide you through the story.

A beautifully crafted show from family theatre experts Patch Theatre, ZOOOM is inspired by Harold and the Purple Crayon – and in the spirit of that iconic children’s book, celebrates making sense of the world through art.
