Pay What You Decide

Deep in the woods on the big oak tree, lives a little squirrel with big ideas. This is Silly Squirrel. Silly Squirrel has never left the tree but longs to explore! So, before the other squirrels are awake, Silly Squirrel conducts a plan to go on their biggest adventure yet! I wonder who they will meet and what they will find out along the way?
Pull up a picnic blanket and join Above Bounds for this playful new story, written in 2020 for the Summer Reading Challenge and now created into a show for 2021, with puppets, gentle interaction and lots of laughs! This is the perfect introduction to theatre for ages 0-7.
Created as part of the Cultural Investment Fund, with the support of: Plymouth Culture, RIO, The Box, TRP, Barbican Theatre Plymouth, KARST, Take A Part, Literature Works.
Please note:  Teats Hill Amphitheatre has stone seating plus blankets on the surrounding grass areas. You are welcome to bring your own cushions for comfort.

Pay What You Decide!

This show is a Pay What You Decide event, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen the show!
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows, more often.
Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected will help Barbican pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats.
At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash, card or via our website.
