Marty is heading to the best party there has ever been in the history of ever. Follow them there for an adorable, cheeky show about fun, friendship and finding your groove.

There’s a party. It’s sure to be arty. There’ll be giggles and nibbles and the dress code is ‘smartly’.

Everyone has their dance moves at the ready – Fox is doing the foxtrot, Flamingo is doing the flamenco! But what about Marty?

Join Marty as they discover what makes their heart dance, making new friends on the way.

Milk Presents and Derby Theatre deliver an utterly charming and cheeky story for little ones and their grown ups.

Please note, this show contains haze, latex balloons and confetti.

All performances are Relaxed Performances. This means that we have a relaxed approach to noise and movement in the space, and you are free to enter and exit during the performances. A chill-out space and noise-cancelling headphones are available for both adults and children. Aside from the Sensory Adapted performance on Saturday 8 April, no changes are made to the lights and sound.

All performances are British Sign Language interpreted (BSL) by Max Marchewicz (subject to change).

To book tickets for these services, call us on 020 3879 9555 or email [email protected].

The performance Saturday 8 April at 10.30am is also Sensory Adapted. It has lower levels of lighting and sound effects, so may be especially suitable for audiences with sensory sensitivities. This may include those with neurodivergence such as autism, learning difficulties or other sensory or communication needs.

House lights are also left on at a low level to help make any movement in the auditorium safer.

You can join our free Access Scheme through your online Southbank Centre account or via email. Find out more about our Access Scheme
