Sarah & Duck Come To Life In Wimbledon

Children's show starts its UK tour at The Polka Theatre

The world of CBeebies' hit animated series Sarah & Duck will be brought to life on stage for the first time at Wimbledon's Polka Theatre.

Featuring a host of characters from the BAFTA award-winning show, Sarah & Duck’s Big Top Birthday will play at Polka Theatre from Thursday (April 6) to May 14, prior to a UK Tour.

Join Sarah and Duck, along with all their favourite friends including The Ribbon Sisters, The Shallots, John and Flamingo and Umbrella, as they plan a circus-themed birthday party for Scarf Lady in their garden. But when the weather turns windy and the big top is blown away, will Sarah and Duck be able to save the day?

Told through a blend of puppetry, storytelling and music, Sarah & Duck’s Big Top Birthday promises to take families and children on a magical theatrical adventure.

Following the gentle adventures of a wide-eyed, seven-year-old girl and her feathered best friend, Sarah & Duck has been a hit since its debut in 2013, winning a BAFTA for ‘Best Pre-School Animation’ in 2014 and regularly appearing in CBeebies' Top Ten programmes for viewers aged 4-15. Now in its third series, it is shown in over 100 counties around the world.

Sarah & Duck’s Big Top Birthday is written by Peter Glanville, artistic director of Polka Theatre. It is directed by Roman Stefanski with set and puppet design by Laura McEwen.

Recommended for children aged 3-6.
