Some things are very precious

It's not about how much they cost

Join Ruby and Peter as they search for Baby Small, where a puddle becomes an ocean, a freezer becomes a winter wonderland and a hedge becomes a deep dark wood.



This charming and exciting piece of musical and participatory theatre has been developed by our creative team with the children from Central Nursery, Derby Written by Dr Mike Kenny with music by Dan Willis,it will be a truly immersive experience for the children as they join Ruby' and her Dad on their adventure to find baby Small.
