Written by Casey Jay Andrews & Nathan Foad

Directed by Laura Trundle & Casey Jay Andrews
Puppetry Design by Casey Jay Andrews
A musical puppetry adventure following the intrepid journey of an unlikely little hero.
Mildred is suddenly thrown out of her hum-drum TV screen routine and thrust into the heart of an Arctic adventure. She is sent on an impossible mission to the Midnight City, but her journey drastically changes course, and with only a polar bear for company, she faces the challenge of a lifetime. Music, puppetry and storytelling take the explorers through the storm and into the heart of this icy escapade.
A family show that strives for young audiences to engage with the themes of self-worth, equality and friendship.
