Paloma has always mucked about with Pijon. They love it. They run wild. They dress up. Like tigers, flamenco dancers, queens, kings, rabbits and Lady Gaga. Everything.
 
Life is fun and funny and a little bit loopy.

Until all of a sudden, Paloma comes face to face with a blinding light named Big Luce. Paloma doesn’t understand what she’s done wrong but Big Luce just won’t leave her be. Paloma and Pijon are catapulted into a strange new world where they begin their surreal adventure, determined to find out what Big Luce is all about.
 
Created by award-winning theatre maker Caroline Horton and an international ensemble, Muckers is a funny, magical, physical production for ages 5+. With original songs and quite a lot of Spanish, this mischievous show asks what it takes to stand proud and be true to ourselves, and how we empower the next generation to do the same.

 

   

FREE Arts & Craft Activity for children and their grown ups

Join us for one of our FREE pre show, drop-in arts and craft ‘Hands on Happenings’ sessions in the Cambridge Junction foyer. These creative activities, led by a professional visual artist are themed to tie in with the family shows that you will be seeing on stage.

Hands on Happenings will be available an hour before the show i.e. 10.30 for 11.30 show. The sessions do get very busy so early arrival is advised.

“Comes perilously close to genius and announces Horton as a major, major talent.”
