About this event

All aboard! Tethered Wits invites you to embark on a magical journey filled with fun, music, and heartwarming storytelling.

Meet the Waterbury children: Roberta, Peter, and Phyllis. They are ordinary children living in an ordinary house, until one day, a mysterious event changes their lives forever.

Forced to move to the countryside, they move near a bustling railway, where every passing locomotive brings new mysteries, friendships, and discoveries. Our young heroes find themselves in the midst of a true adventure.

Bring your friends and family together, on a journey that celebrates the timeless power of love, community, and the unbreakable bonds of family.

Age Guidance: 5+ (Fun for all the family!)

Running Time: 1 hour (no interval)
