After a hugely successful Midlands tour, Wriggle Dance Theatre will be touring nationally with 'Once in a Blue Moon' an interactive dance theatre piece for children aged 3 - 6 years and their grown - ups.

A fantastic show! 'Brilliantly devised and wonderfully performed. Poetic, magical, heart-warming, imaginative and fun. I couldn't have wished for a better show for my boy's first theatre experience!'
