An animated adventure for all ages, with original music and an all-star cast, 'Smallfoot' turns the Bigfoot legend upside down when a bright young Yeti finds something he thought didn't exist—a human. News of this 'smallfoot' brings him fame and a chance with the girl of his dreams. It also throws the simple Yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village, in a rollicking story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery.

For audience members who may benefit from a more relaxed environment, including (but not limited to) those with autistic spectrum conditions, anyone with sensory and communication disorders or learning disabilities.
House lights left up, sound level kept down and less pops and bangs are just a few ways the show is adapted to help reduce anxiety.
These performances are open to all, but we ask audience members to be mindful of the needs of others to move around freely and make involuntary noise.
