About the Show
A children's story inspired by the African-Caribbean diaspora.
When Belle is feeling blue, she heads down into her grandfather’s basement and discovers his old dusty instruments. But far from being junk, The Instrumentals are pure funk, and they teach Belle to ‘get down’ in a whole new way.
Brought to life through puppetry and music, the Instrumentals explores the memories we hold and how we celebrate life.
This production is suitable for children ages 4-8.
" 'The Instrumentals' is an entertaining and uplifting show that beautifully combines puppetry and music to create a powerful piece of children's theatre that is moving in every sense of the word."
"The positivity is commendable, but there is some glibness in the execution...Still, seeing young audience members dancing in the aisles is heartening, and the play makes an accessible entry point to a difficult topic."
