‘I Believe in Unicorns’ showing at Vaudeville Theatre

Wizard presents I believe in unicorns by Michael Morpurgo

This intimate show is set in a library full of books that hold more than stories within their pages. It is a tale of the power of books, and the bravery of a young boy called Tomas. Tomas hates school, books and stories but, forced to visit the library his world is turned upside down the day that he meets the unicorn lady there, he stops to listen to magical tales that she tells and he is drawn in…. an enchanting and interactive show, I believe in unicorns sparks imagination in both young and old, and challenges you not believe in unicorns after joining Tomas’s spellbinding journey.

Set against the backdrop of war-torn Europe, “I Believe in Unicorns” explores the power of stories to transform lives.

A moving play that shows us the importance of books, community and the devastation of war…..with hope at the end. I can not wait to watch the show for myself and for the children to experience a magical show based on the best-selling children’s author Michael Morpurgo’s enchanting tale to life.
