AN ADAPTATION of a best-selling children’s book will have little ones enthralled this Saturday.

The Blunderbus Theatre Company brings The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark to Louth’s Riverhead Theatre

Plop was exactly the same as every barn owl that has ever been - except for one thing. He was afraid of the dark.

One day, Mrs Barn Owl suggested Plop fly down into the world and find out about the dark for himself. So, Plop climbed out of his branch and his adventure began.

Based on the classic children’s book by Jill Tomlinson, this funny gentle and reassuring tale is written especially for small people aged three to seven, as well as grown ups who sleep with the big light on.

With an irresistible blend of live music, puppetry and storytelling, this beautiful new show introduces an old friend to a new generation of theatre-goers.

Join Plop, the baby barn owl as he journeys into the night-time world of campfires, fireworks, starry nights and moonlit adventures - it’s sure to be a hoot.

Performances take place on February 18, at 11am and 2.30pm.

Tickets cost £6 for adults and £4 for under 14s from the box office on 01507 600350.
