SRP: Potato Needs a Bath
Potato has mud on his face. Potato has mud in his ears. Potato needs a bath (just don’t get soap in his eyes!)
Age suitability: 3-5
Running time: 55 minutes
There is going to be a party and everyone is ready – except Potato.
Onion is practicing his guitar, Aubergine is wearing her new necklace and Peach is bouncing on the bed with excitement.
Potato needs a bath – but he has other ideas – because Potato loves mud!
Meet Maris Piper and her fruit and vegetable friends in this colourful combination of live and pre-recorded performance based on the much loved theatre show, then join the fruit and vegetable party of the year live online.
Potato Needs a Bath (digital) is based on the original theatre show by Andy Manley & Shona Reppe and was commissioned by Theatre in Schools Scotland, a National Theatre of Scotland and Imaginate partnership.
Get ready for the party:
Children are encouraged to bring a fruit or vegetable friend to the party. We will send you instruction videos in advance with suggestions of what to make to get ready for the vegetable party.
Edinburgh International Children’s Festival 2021
Potato Needs a Bath (digital) will be part of The Edinburgh International Children’s Festival in May & June 2021 (times and dates vary).
