DID you ever have an imaginary friend? A little piece of mischief only you could see? Join PaddleBoat Theatre this half term as they bring their delightful production Margot & Mr Whatsit to Dorset through Artsreach, the county’s arts charity.

Sophia’s imaginary friend is called Mr Whatsit, and he’s always there with a new joke to tell and a new game to play - that is, until the day she ‘unimagines’ him.

Now there’s a new imaginary friend in town - the tea-drinking, lipstick-wearing, ever-confident Margo. Can Mr. Whatsit’s childish playfulness keep him from being unimagined forever? And as Sophia’s imagination goes to war, will she manage to find peace in her new home?

Born from the vibrant city of Exeter, PaddleBoat Theatre are committed to delivering high-quality productions for children and families across the South-West.

Yvonne Gallimore, Artsreach co-director said: “It’s exciting to be introducing a young, dynamic company from the region to our audiences. With the support of our sponsors Blanchards Bailey, we’ve got a really exciting programme of performances for children and their families to take part in this half term.”

PaddleBoat Theatre Company presents a lively and imaginative tale of mime, puppetry, music, clowning and object play. Suitable for ages four plus.

n The show visits Cerne Abbas Village Hall on February 18 at 11am. Call 01300 341332 for tickets.
