Family Shows at The Dukes

Squidge Landscape



Do you squish or squash, tickle or most certainly not, handshake or hug, stretch out or snuggle in like a bug?

‘Squidge’ is a fun interactive dance performance with live music and digital projection, which takes a light-hearted look at our sense of touch and how it influences our everyday lives. At the heart of the show is a tale of friendship, compromise and how each and every one of us need touch to make us feel alive!

Immerse yourself in this shared experience for children 3-8yrs and their grown-ups. Sit in your own special seating area where you can explore magical light-up boxes, full of exciting textures for little hands which will delight and tickle your senses.


Stars in the Sky


Follow the magical nighttime adventures of old Stella as she sets out to reach the Stars in the Sky.

A luminous mix of storytelling and shadow puppetry ingeniously told with a scrolling, rolling, light-up, glowing shadow box machine otherwise knowns as a ‘crankie’.

Inspired by a traditional fold tale the story takes off on an exciting romp amongst the fantastical wild beasts of the stars as they leap across the scrolling background and even fly out of the box onto a large paper screen. Moments of wonder and a star eating giant create a fun show for all the family.
