Check out the half-term alien adventures you can have with the kids at the Playhouse


Half-term is here and the Playhouse has lined up the perfect adventure for your little ones in Liverpool

This half-term at the Playhouse, little explorers can soar into space with The Smeds and the Smoos by Julia Donaldson and Axel Sheffler.

Set on a far-off planet where Smeds and Smoos can’t be friends, a young Smed and Smoo fall in love and zoom off into space together. With music, laughs and interplanetary adventures for everyone aged 3 and up, this new show from Tall Stories (the company that brought The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom to stage) is the perfect February half-term treat. The Smeds and The Smoos is at the Playhouse from Thursday 24 to Saturday 26 February, with tickets priced at £14.

The show continues the Everyman & Playhouse Theatres’ commitment to introducing the magic of theatre to families and young children, by bringing some of the nation’s favourite children’s picture books to life. In March, the new pop musical Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World returns, based on Kate Pankhurst’s book; followed in April by everyone’s favourite tea guzzling tiger with The Tiger Who Came to Tea and in June, we take a thrilling ride through the sky with Zog and The Flying Doctors.

Ashlie Nelson, responsible for programming the shows that visit the theatres explained:

“We’ve seen a real appetite for children’s work over the years, even more so as theatres have re-opened. Parents, grandparents, teachers and guardians are increasingly wanting the little people in their lives to have new experiences away from electronic devices. Bringing to life on stage books the children are already familiar with is a perfect way. It’s a real joy to see how magical it is for the children (and often the grown ups), many who are visiting for the first time. A great reminder of why I love my job.”

Enjoy Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World from 25 March to 2 April; The Tiger Who Came to Tea from 12 to 16 April; and Zog and The Flying Doctors from 2 to 4 June. All shows are at the Playhouse and tickets are available now at

School holidays will also see the return of Young Everyman Playhouse’s popular Drama Week. This February half-term, children in Key Stage 2 can enjoy a whole week of drama activities, games and creating a performance, all run by our experienced youth theatre directors at the Everyman. Further dates to be announced.
