The first two performances, with children from Elmore Green Primary, are this Sunday, 21 June, at 2pm and 5pm, at Bookmark Theatre, Elmore Row.
The second, on Sunday June 28 at 2pm and 5pm, will include children from St Peter’s RC Church.
Tickets are available from the library on 01922 655900 at £7 adults, £5 concessions, or £15 for a family ticket (max 5 people).
