The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark is on at the Hertford Theatre


THERE’S an Easter holiday treat for the young ones at the Hertford Theatre on Saturday with a live performance of The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark.

Plop is a baby barn owl, exactly the same as every other barn owl except for one thing – he is afraid of the dark.

One day, Mrs Barn Owl suggested that Plop fly down into the world and find out about the dark for himself.

So, Plop climbed out of his nest-hole, wobbled a bit, and fell off his branch. And so his adventures began.

This stage adaptation is suitable for children aged three and above and there are shows at 1pm and 3.30pm.

Tickets cost £11, £9 concessions, and £38 for a family ticket.
