Dommy B presents

When Trolls Try to Eat your Goldfish

£9 FULL / £7 CONC / £4.50 FAMILY CLUB


In the middle of the night there is a noise - a snuffling and a shuffling and a splintering of wood.

A line of troll-prints lead out the door, across the lawn and into the deep, dark forest.

All of the animals have disappeared!

Where have they gone?

One young girl is going to do everything she can to save the day ...

This high energy, comedy show (created with Action Transport Theatre, Big Imaginations and Grants for the Arts) is a unique mix of performance and poetry  directed by prize-winning theatre maker Kevin Dyer (Writers' Guild of Great Britain Best Play for Children and Young People). The Daily Telegraph describes his work as 'The stuff of golden childhood memories'.

Dommy B (from BBC 'Rhyme Rocket') has previously performed his shows Spark, The Goblin Wizard and aaaaaaaaaaaaagh! Dinosaurs!  here at Waterside Arts.


Family Club tickets have now sold out for this performance.


‘Wonderful show – kept the children’s (and adults) attention the whole time.’ A teacher from Newcastle commenting on 'Spark, the Goblin Wizard'.

‘My only criticism is not being warned to wear waterproof mascara, I laughed so hard!’ A Mum from Preston after '’Aaaaaaaaaaaaagh! Dinosaurs'.

‘Funny and enjoyable. More! More More!’ Seven year old boy describing Dommy B poetry.

‘From the moment he started to speak we were totally captivated- the incredible way he uses words, the expression and energy of the delivery and the subject matter made him irresistible.’ City Life Magazine
