Riverside presents A Windmill Theatre Company Production
BEEP


“A tender tale of friendship.” – The Advertiser

In Mort’s village everything has its place, every day is the same and everyone likes it that way. Until one morning, crash, boom, bang…down comes Beep. What is this annoying interruption to Mort’s breakfast molly melon? Who is this noisy robot girl, and how will she find her home?

Featuring Windmill’s (Grug and the Rainbow) trademark design, gentle storytelling, music and puppetry, Beep tells the story of what happens when someone new comes to town.

Suitable for ages 2 – 7 and their families

From the Program Coordinator…

A robot, puppets, music, and an unlikely friendship – what’s not to like? Fantastic as a first live theatre experience for younger students, this show has a beautiful story that can be used as a catalyst to studying narrative structure and characterisation, as well as themes of accepting change and embracing our own uniqueness along with the differences in others.
