Embark on a magical, real-time adventure with Lone Twin's Beastie and share a jaw-dropping secret.
Who's that hiding around the corner? What's that moving in the trees? If you come face to face with Beastie, what will you do?
Kids take charge as they create their own stories and explore their surroundings hand-in-hand with a very special new friend. The result is a playful, active and engaging experience for small groups of children - and one big surprise for adults!
Directed by Gregg Whelan and Gary Winters, Lone Twin are acclaimed for making an ever diverse range of intimate, hopeful and entertaining projects. 'Beastie' combines this extensive theatrical experience with Gregg and Gary's work writing for children's television.
