Gobbo is a goblin who doesn’t like adventures. What Gobbo likes best is sitting in front of his fire eating rhubarb and drinking dandelion ale and farting. If Gobbo had to make a list of the top ten things he didn’t like it would probably begin with:
10.Going down river rapids in a leaky canoe
9. Being captured by eagles
8. Falling down thousand foot cliffs.
Which is a shame for Gobbo because those are just of the things that happen to him in The Adventure of Gobbo and The Watchmaker.
The trouble is that Gobbo’s best friends – the brave and cheerful Globachan ‘We’ll be fine‘ and Globachan’s clever and plucky daughter, Pixie Pumpkin ‘How did you know I had a time shield?’- just can’t resist an adventure and so Gobbo is forever finding himself embroiled in dangerous scrapes.
This time, they must meet the scariest baddie yet – the Watchmaker and his mechanical army.
A show with live music, lots of dancing, some funny bits and a raffle with good prizes, Gobbo is a production for the whole family.
(Well, there are some exciting bits, like the attack of the giant robot baby – you might get scared. And there is the farting – you might be offended. And it’s really not very educational. Maybe you’d better not come.)
