Dig and Delve (2013)

White Horse Road
4 Jun - 8 Jun 2013
Age range: 3-7
  • Co-production Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance

What can be found through the garden gate? Come and dig, fork and rake in the rich soil of our magical garden, where a world of exciting adventures with unexpected new friends begins. Planting seeds will never be quite the same again!

Featuring a cast of nine and with live music throughout, Dig and Delve took audiences on a journey rummaging among the undergrowth, playing with flower pots and taking flight with the birds that nest in the old tree.

A visual and musical treat for the whole family, this production continued Half Moon’s on-going collaboration with one of the UK’s leading drama schools, Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance, following the collaboration on Scrub-a-Dub.
