Suitable for children aged 7 and under and their families.
It’s time for bed in the Wild West, but Cowboy Baby ain’t tired. No sirree! There’s still loads of time to play with Texas Ted, Denver Dog and Hank the Horse. If only Cowboy Baby can find ‘em before Sheriff Pa finds him first. Cowboy Baby is not only a terrific western yarn for children but also a beautiful story about love and friendship. So expect howlin’ coyotes, twirlin’ lassos, prickly cacti, plus songs and puppetry around the ol’ campfire.
“Perfect … just right for all young cowboys and cowgirls.” Buxton Fringe Review
“A really lovely play for families – highly recommended” Jane Streeter, Co-ordinator Lowdham Book Festival
“In terms of energy and sheer entertainment it was fantastic. I don’t believe anyone who comes to see it won’t leave smiling!”
Sarah Kerry, Nottingham Academy.
“I took two of my grandchildren to see Cowboy Baby and they both loved it. Aged two and four it seemed to appeal to both ages and they also loved the post show workshop. They have the book at home and it will be very special now when it is read to them. Well done on a great show for children.” Audience member, Birmingham Rep
