MishMash Productions make a welcome return to the NCEM with their 2020 show ‘Strange Creatures’ – a musical adventure to delight children and families alike.

Featuring violin, viola and cello, this award-winning Company creates a magical world for all the family inspired by the book Beegu - written and illustrated by Alexis Deacon and performed by arrangement with Penguin Random House Children’s Publishers UK, a Penguin Random House company.

The performance is full of the most wonderful music and the imaginative staging allows the children in attendance to immerse themselves in every sequence’ Alexis Deacon

We need your help to welcome Beegu into a colourful world of musical fun and surprises.
First, bring something yellow with you from home – duster, sponge, hair bobble, badge, hat, scarf.  Anything yellow.
Second, bring along something to be your own alien friend.  A wooden spoon, book, feather duster, potato masher, juggling ball, building block, ball of wool, pencil case – you can choose!

For children aged 4 –7 and their families

As a family friendly concert some of the seating and bar details are slightly different please see below

Each booking will be seated on floor on a round red carpet which we are calling a pod. The carpets will be placed in a socially distant seating pattern at least 2m from the stage and from other carpets.
The carpets will be cleaned between performances.
