Grandpa in my Pocket - Teamwork! embarks on a national tour

Wednesday 23rd January 2013

We’re delighted to announce that our fantastic stage show Grandpa in my Pocket – Teamwork! is off on a national tour this summer.

Based on the hugely popular Cbeebies TV series, Grandpa in my Pocket – Teamwork! follows Jason Mason and his incredible shrinking Grandpa on a pirate adventure. The tour kicks off here at Nottingham Playhouse on 23 May. Chief Executive Stephanie Sirr was excited about the show’s return, saying, “Grandpa in my Pocket is a brilliant show which was so popular with families who came to see it last summer, we are thrilled that it’s returning to the Playhouse before it heads off on tour around the country.”

Teamwork! is a whole new ‘Grandpa’ theatre experience. Sunnysands Pirate, Horatio Heave Ho takes Jason and Jemima on a pirate adventure in search of treasure. But when things go wrong, it’s time for Grandpa to put on his Shrinking Cap and save the day. It’s Teamwork!

A brand new story told by a young ensemble cast who bring all your favourite Sunnysands characters and places to life before your eyes. Imaginative and highly theatrical, children will fall in love with Grandpa in my Pocket all over again.
