Get set for adventure and laughs for the whole family this Easter holiday at Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre with some hero movie matinees and a special interactive live comedy show.
The stars of CBBC television show Little Howard’s Big Question are in town on Wednesday, April 1, (2pm) with their unique family comedy stage show that the audience can get involved in.
Sing and laugh along as human Big Howard and animated six-year-old Little Howard discover that life is tough in showbiz.
Little Howard’s big new act keeps going wrong, Roger The Pigeon has spent all their money on cookie cutters, Big Howard has been diagnosed with being clinically unfunny and there’s a slug in the backstage toilet.
And it’s about to get worse when a sinister figure arrives, so Big Howard and Little Howard have to put on the best show of their lives to keep themselves out of jail.
Tickets for this fun-filled adventure are £7.50 for adults and £6 for concessions.
If you prefer the silver screen then there are three chances to watch Big Hero 6 – by the Walt Disney Animation Studios behind Frozen and Wreck-it Ralph.
The 2pm screenings are on Tuesday, March 31, and Tuesday, April 7, with a relaxed date on World Autism Awareness Day (Wednesday, April 1) for those on the autism spectrum.
The PG rated film (102 minutes) is set in San Fransokyo, where the boy genius Hiro Hamada finds himself flung into danger and turns for help from Baymax, his plus-sized inflatable robot ‘healthcare companion’.
Along with his friends; the adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago, super tidy Wasabi, chemistry whizkid Honey Lemon and fan boy Fred, the team must uncover the mystery and transform themselves into a band of high-tech heroes called Big Hero 6.
Then, on Thursday, April 9, and Friday, April 10, popular TV character and star of the Wallace and Gromit films, Shaun the Sheep, takes the lead in his very own movie (85 minutes).
The Shaun the Sheep Movie sees our woolly hero having a day off where he just wants to have fun; but mischief and a mix-up with a caravan leads him and his friends into the big city, to rescue the farmer and then to guide the flock back to the safety of the rolling green fields, and home.
Tickets for these family films are just £5.45 for adults and £4.20 for concessions. All tickets can be purchased in person, online at www.leightonbuzzardlibrarytheatre.co.uk or by calling 0300 300 8125 (£1 per ticket booking fees apply).
