Rosie's Magic Horse
Our enchanting show for children and families Rosie's Magic Horse is based on a book that could only have come from the wonderful imagination of Russell Hoban and brought vividly to life by illustrator extraordinaire Quentin Blake opeend at the Southwark Playhouse in December 2014 and was followed by a UK Tour.
Little Rosie collects ice-lolly sticks and puts them in an old box. As Rosie dreams of helping her parents pay off the bills her stick collection dreams of becoming something greater. And so, at the stroke of midnight, magic and dreams collide and a horse gallops out of the box! His name is Stickerino. “Where to?” he asks. “Anywhere with treasure!” she answers. There begins an adventure like none other: ice-lolly mountains by the sea, caskets of gold, and scurvy pirates.
A heart-warming tale of aspiration, friendship, adventure and a little bit of mischief accompanied by catchy songs, this is the perfect treat for everyone aged 3 and up.

with, on the edge of our seats. The piece was so
touching it moved me to tears three times but the
big kid inside me smiled and laughed along. It was
wonderfully performed and simply and beautifully
created, making it heart-warming and lovely and
drawing you to want to join in."
