The Dukes plays host to Charlie and Lola's 'Bestest Play'


Everyone’s favourite brother and sister off the telly – Charlie and Lola – are bringing their magical stage show to The Dukes, Lancaster.

Charlie and Lola’s Best Bestest Play is a wonderful chance for children aged three and older to experience a show designed especially for them.

Charlie is seven and Lola is four. She adores her older brother and has an imaginary friend, Soren Lorenson. Find out if Lola will ever tidy her room or if Charlie will get Lola to sleep, even though she is not sleepy and will not go to bed.  The Tigers want their bedtime milk, the Dancing Dogs have borrowed Lola’s pyjamas – not to mention the Ogre in the wardrobe!  Who’d have known there were so many problems to overcome? 

Now in its third season on CBeebies, based on the books by Lauren Child, Charlie and Lola is a multi-award winning cut out photomontage celaction 2D animation series aimed at a pre-school audience. In each episode, Charlie and Lola deal with issues that they as young children, encounter everyday -- little issues spiral into a succession of imaginative games, role plays and flights of fancy, normally invented by Charlie to coax his spirited little sister Lola round to seeing things in a more reasoned way.

Presented by four puppeteers and using the voices from the TV series, Charlie and Lola appear as cut-out cartoon characters in the same magical world they inhabit in the books and BBC TV series featuring music, magic tricks, pink milk and party rings.

Charlie and Lola will be performing three shows during their visit to Lancaster on Saturday 17th September at 11.00am, 1.30pm and 3.45pm.

• Tickets are priced £12/£10. Concessions £2 off. To book, please contact The Dukes box office on 01524 598500 or www.dukes-lancaster.org
