Our 2021 Performing Arts Series for Students shows will go on sale Tuesday, May 26 at 10am.

Longing to see the world, the tiny sea snail hitches a lift on the tail of a great, grey-blue humpback whale. Together, they go on an amazing journey, told through live cello music, singing, storytelling, and lots of laughs...but when the whale gets beached, how will the snail save him?

Join an adventurous young girl and her sea-faring father as they re-imagine the story of a tiny snail’s incredible trip around the world, inspired by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved picture book. This play with music is a heartwarming adventure for everyone aged four and up from the Olivier Award-nominated company Tall Stories.    

Content Connections: English Language Arts, Literature, Geography, Performing and Fine Arts
