MishMash Productions presents: Ruby's Worry

Ruby had always been happy, perfectly happy…until one day…she discovered a worry…

Ruby tries and tries to get rid of her worry, which grows bigger and bigger!  Eventually she meets a boy who has a worry too.   Together they discover that everyone has worries, and that if you talk about them, they never hang around for long!  

Told through live music, song, puppetry and physical theatre, Ruby’s Worry takes the audience on a delightful musical adventure.  

Based on the book Ruby’s Worry, written and illustrated by Tom Percival and published by Bloomsbury.
