It is almost time for bed and in the bathroom three reluctant bathers splish and splash a little too enthusiastically for their mum. But when her back is turned, something unexpected starts to happen. Bathtime will never be quite the same again!
Featuring a cast of 12 and live music throughout, Scrub a Dub took audiences on a bath-time themed adventure, where people, places and everyday things were not quite what they seemed. Children could sail the high seas, swim in an underwater world and play on a sunshine-filled beach, in this visual and musical feast. This production was the first of its kind in a long collaboration between Half Moon and one of the UK’s leading drama schools, Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance.
Chris Elwell has been the Director of Half Moon Theatre on White Horse Road since 1997. He talks about the company’s work with Higher Education Institutions, in particular creating shows for young audiences with students from Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance.

Thank you so much for letting all the children see the show…their favourite game is now charades and they love guessing what the ‘actors’ are trying to perform. Too cute! Nearly all of our children have never been to the seaside and it was really special for them be ‘at the seaside’ during the performance.
