Twinkle and The Mechanical Light Machine is a gorgeous magical show from Oldham Theatre Workshop on stage now until 30th December at Oldham Libraries performance space. We have seen some wonderful shows from OTW including The Secret of Christmas Eve and Hansel and Gretal.
A child who’s lost their sparkle, a town where the Christmas lights have mysteriously gone out. After a difficult year, the people of the town aren’t feeling very festive, some have even forgotten how to be kind. Everything seems hopeless until Twinkle meets the light mechanics who promise that hope is not lost.On the coldest, darkest of wintery nights, can Twinkle help to fix the mechanical light machine in time for Santa to find his way on Christmas Eve. A captivating story with delightful music and unforgettable characters. Twinkle and the Mechanical light Machine is an enchanting story about the power of the light within every child.
Joshua and I were invited to the launch event and loved every second of the show. It’s perfect for little ones and grown-ups alike. I think my 5 year olds would really love it and hoping to book again if I can fit it in over the Christmas period.
From start to finish it was enchanting. The songs were a delight and the story heartwarming. Jabez Sykes who played Pip (amongst other characters) is very funny and had the whole audience laughing throughout, the children loved him. We remembered him from The Secret of Christmas Eve. The entire cast are fantastic, it’s a lovely show and cleverly done with such a small cast.
