Blast Off

By Thomas Daniel Byrne
Outdoor walkabout theatre
Times and locations TBC

Suitable for all ages

‘Blast Off!’ is a miniature walkabout ‘crankie’ performance for audiences of two at a time

In this short, intimate walkabout theatre show, a story of space travel, friendship and football playing aliens is revealed. Audiences watch a beautifully illustrated crankie scroll (think of a TV before TVs were invented) while listening to a special 2 ½ minute audio composition.
