Family Show - Squashbox Theatre - Universarama

Family Show - Squashbox Theatre - Universarama
Family Show - Squashbox Theatre - Universarama


The wonderful Squashbox Theatre return to St Ives with a new show for kids and families.

Universarama - Sunday 1st May - 2.00 pm - St Ives Guildhall.

Tickets: £5 Adult, £4 Child, £16 Family.
Available from St Ives Visitor Information Centre at The Guildhall.
Also online from:
Cornish Riviera Box Office

Since the dawn of time, human beings have gazed up at the night sky and wondered… What’s up there? How far does it go? Does it ever end? Well, wonder no longer! All these questions and more will be answered in Universarama! (Possibly).

Let Professor Johnson of the Squashbox Theatre Astounding And Amazing Astronomical Research Society (S.T.A.A.A.A.R.S) take you on a journey to the edges of space and time! Along the way we will explore the solar system, study the stars and constellations, visit distant galaxies, and hear the fascinating story of John Couch Adams, the Cornishman who discovered Neptune.

Using only silly puppets, ridiculous and unnecessary props, simple household objects and assorted fruits and vegetables, Professor Johnson will reveal the secrets of the universe!

Universarama! is a marvellous blend of spectacle, storytelling and cabaret, all contained within an accessible, funny and unique family show.
