The Whirlybird

About The Whirlybird

An exciting new show for 3-7 year olds and their families, The Whirlybird celebrates the differences that make us unique, finding inspiration in nature and the wonder of flight.

Scotland’s leading Eco-friendly theatre company is set to tour its latest production - The Whirlybird - to venues and museums across Scotland this spring. Through movement, music, birdsong and puppetry, The Whirlybird is a funny and moving story about a bird that yearns to fly.

In a cosy nest, two birds look skyward and get ready for their maiden flight. While flying comes easy for one, the other just can’t get the hang of it. After many failed attempts, inspiration is found in a very special flying seed.

Directed and co-devised by Eco Drama founder Emily Reid, the show is performed by co-devisors Caroline Mathison and Beth Kovarik with music by Greg Sinclair and set design by Claire Halleran.

Children aged 3-5 years from Buchlyvie Nursery in Easterhouse were involved in the show’s early stages of development. The children took part in sessions on the theme of birds, flight and puppetry. These sessions empowered them to use creativity to engage with their natural environment.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Whirlybird are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
