Rocket Girl

Event Information

6 June, 11.30am & 3pm

Showing on Sat 6 Jun

The year is 1969 and the world is changing. Beehives and miniskirts are all the rage; Everyone is listening to The Beatles and NASA has just put the first man on the moon. The world is transfixed and everyone is watching, including eight-year-old Maisie Robinson. From this very moment, Maisie knows that she is destined to be an astronaut. In her dreams she travels beyond the Earth’s atmosphere and flies amongst the brightest of stars. But unknown to Maisie, people have other plans about her future. After all, girls don’t do science, do they?

Using an amalgamation of storytelling, puppetry and movement with an original score, join us in making the impossible possible as one girl battles to become… Rocket Girl!
