The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish

What if you wanted your best friend's goldfish so much that you would swap anything you had for them? Anything. Absolutely anything. Even your Dad. Well that's just what Tom does and when Mum finds out, she's not pleased and Tom and his little sister have to 'GO GET DAD BACK'. Unfortunately, it's not that simple. Nathan doesn't have Dad any more. He swapped him for Vashti's electric guitar. And Vashti swapped Dad, with Blinky, for a Gorilla mask. And Blinky swapped Dad, with Patti, for Galveston the rabbit. And Patti lives a very, very long way away.

Production details

Young audiences and their friends and families are invited to take part in an interactive promenade production to help Tom and his sister on their mission to get Dad back. The performance will move throughout interesting spaces in each theatre building and the audience will go on a journey with the cast, encountering surprises along the way. The Day I Swapped My Day For Two Goldfish is a theatrical adventure for children aged six to ten, which is a little bit about being a sibling and a little bit about being a genius.
