Plenty for younger audiences at Lighthouse, Poole this autumn
A new season of bold and imaginative shows for younger audiences at Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts aims to bring the joys of live theatre to a new generation.
The fun starts on 2 November with the classic adventure story, Emil and the Detectives. Based on the book by Erich Kästner, it’s a fun-packed thriller as Emil and his band of young sleuths chase through the streets of 1930s Berlin in pursuit of a dirty rotten who has stolen Emile’s money.
In time for the autumn half term on 30 October, Toro! Toro! by War Horse creator Michael Morpurgo tells the story of young Antonito whose idyllic life on his parents’ cattle farm in southern Spain is shattered when he realises his favourite bull-calf, brave Paco, is destined to fight in the bullring. As the clouds of civil war start to form, Antonito hatches a daring plan.
Celebrating all that’s messy at meal times, Yummm! on 1 November is a dance theatre show in which tables dance, plates spin, the audience is sat around the dinner table and children get their own utensils to play with. It’s crunchy, sweet, tart, gooey, runny, sour, thick and, above all, yummy!

The season ends with Arthur’s Dream Boat on 2 November. A magical, playful show with amazing puppets and music by Tom Gray of Mercury Award winning band Gomez, it tells the story of Arthur and his dream about a pink and green boat with a stripy mast. He wants to tell everyone about it, but nobody’s interested – they can’t even see the boat is growing on his head!
