Bee Detective

Sun 1 Jan 2012

Sophie Bee’s busy life is a happy buzz of pollen seeking, dancing with her fellow bees and making yummy honey.

But when the worker bees begin to disappear, can Sophie use all her deductive powers to solve the mystery and save the hive? Staged in a bee-autiful tent, this interactive, multisensory theatre experience invites you to join the investigation and help the intrepid Sophie with her inquiries.

Combining performance, projected animations and waggle dancing, Bee Detective is accessible to deaf audiences through captioning and sign language and essential viewing for all.
