Caroline Liversidge, Paula Penman and Bob Nicholson in association with Northern Stage

In a cobweb covered attic, above a dark and dusty house, a series of spooky surprises unfolds and the coffin lid is lifted on a secret that is best kept out of the sunlight… because you can count on vampires to keep their mouths shut… or can you?

A fang-tastic Halloween treat for little vampires who are losing their milk teeth, aged 7 and under, with music and puppets. From the team that brought you The Gingerbread Man this is a Halloween treat you can really sink your teeth into… Ah ha ha…

Age Guidance: 7 and under
