Chester Tuffnut

Performed from Mon 3 — Wed 5 Apr


A Gomito Theatre and Polka Theatre Co-Production

An action-packed escapade with a one-of-a-kind creature Chester Tuffnut is a new production created by Gomito and Polka Theatre.

Chester Tuffnut isn’t your ordinary treemole – in fact he is one of a kind! Chester likes wearing jumpers and sitting in his armchair, but most of all he loves adventure! The curious creatures in Woodland have gone so long without excitement; they’ve forgotten how to have fun. Luckily, Chester is on hand to bring happiness and laughter back to his new Woodland friends.

Told with puppets, original music and imaginative antics, this show is full of humour, thrills, spills, near misses and great escapes. This is a story about discovering new places and making friends, while encouraging everyone to have at least one adventure a day.

Suitable for ages 2+
