The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers {Giveaway: Family package of 4 tickets}

Posted by ~Summer~ on August 28, 2015

Since we watched The Incredible Book Eating Boy earlier this year, we have fallen in love with a handful of children's books by Oliver Jeffers, including Lost and Found and How to Catch a Star.

So, when we knew that another of his classic picture books is coming live on stage very soon, you bet the kids are very much looking forward to it. If your kid is a fan of Oliver Jeffers and enjoys theatrical productions, GOOD NEWS, I have a family package of FOUR tickets to give away at the end of the post!

I Theatre presents 

Big Wooden Horse and Theatre Royal Winchester’s production: 

The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers  

An inter-galactic adventure tale for children 3 and up! 

Oliver Jeffers, award-winning author of How To Catch A Star and Lost and Found returns with an inter-galactic tale about a little boy seeking adventure.

One day a boy finds a plane in his cupboard. He flies his plane higher and higher until he runs out of petrol and lands on the moon. He is frightened, lost and alone until a passing Martian lands there too! Who is the strange alien? Can they be friends? And how will they find their way back home?

This exciting new production for families and young children has been created by the team behind the hit shows Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus and The Night Before Christmas.

Writer and director Adam Bampton-Smith said: “Oliver Jeffers’ fantastic picture book is perfect for adapting into a live stage version. The story of friendship between the boy and alien is one that everyone can relate to, coupled with those wonderful images which we have incorporated into the stage design. There is plenty of audience interaction and some great new music produced by the composers of The Gruffalo and Room On The Broom.”
