Artsreach presents: The Paddleboat Theatre production of "Margo & Mr Whatsit"
Did you ever have an imaginary friend? A little piece of mischief only you could see? Sophia's imaginary friend is called Mr. Whatsit, and he's always there with a new joke to tell and a new game to play - that is, until the day she unimagines him.
Now there's a new imaginary friend in town - the tea-drinking, lipstick-wearing, ever-confident Margo. Can Mr. Whatsit's childish playfulness keep him from being unimagined forever? And as Sophia's imagination goes to war, will she manage to find peace in her new home?
PaddleBoat Theatre Company present a lively and imaginative tale full of mime, puppetry, music, clowning and object play and invite you to enter Sophia's world, where the real and the imaginary collide and friends are never far away. Suitable 4+
