Duration: approx 45 minutes

At her Grandfather’s wake, Belle is feeling down so she slips into the basement and discovers his old dusty instruments. But far from being junk, The Instrumentals are pure funk, and they teach Belle to ‘get down’ in a whole new way.

Bursting to life with brilliant puppetry and bold music, the Instrumentals is full of love and laughter, about the memories we hold and how we celebrate life. This is a show for all children with characters, story & inspiration from the African-Caribbean diaspora. It’s full of uplifting original music with soulful sounds and seventies grooves.

Combined with innovative puppetry and lots of comedy, this fun musical journey will have audiences dancing in the aisles!

Age Guidance

The Instrumentals is aimed at ages 4-11. The story deals with the different feelings (sadness, confusion and anger) associated with grief and the loss of a family member (Grandpa) – all in a way that is appropriate for this age group, and is ultimately joyful and uplifting, celebrating his life. There is a lot of dialogue, and younger children may not follow everything.
