Reindeers fly. Peter Pan flies. Fairies fly. So why can't I?
Nina desperately wants to fly. To taste the clouds. To race a reindeer. To visit her Grandma at Christmas. Because Christmas time is Grandma time, but Nina’s just moved house and this year they’re 900 miles apart.
She flaps. She spins. She swoops. But will she fly?
Following the huge popularity of The Ugly Duckling Christmas
Special last year, The Herd are back at Hull Truck Theatre this Christmas with this touching story about superpowers, family and being far from home. A Christmas spectacle for 2–5 year olds and their families, told with original music.
How To Fly Like a Reindeer was produced by Hull Truck Theatre in December 2019.
