I Believe in UnicornsMichael Morpurgo's children's book about a little boy who hates stories is adaptated for the stage by the award-winning Wizard Presents Theatre Company. Set in a library, I Believe in Unicorns tells of the power of books and the bravery of Tomas who loves playing in the mountains where he lives but who hates reading and school. His world is turned upside down the day he meets the Unicorn Lady (Danyah Miller) in his local library. Ideal summer entertainment for children aged between five and eleven - and anyone who could be persuaded to believe in unicorns.

One of the theatre's major successes was in 1954 with the musical 'Salad Days', starring Julian Slade and Deborah Reynolds. More about Vaudeville Theatre
