The Gift

Unlock your Christmas

with TouchedTheatre and Z- arts

In development

On a sparkling Christmas eve, a lonely scientist watches his star.  

But a dusting of Christmas magic sends an incredible new friend his way!


Join our friendly scientist, his kind-hearted star and one curious red robot for a Christmas adventure like no other, as we discover the world around us for the first time.


Specially made for very young audience age 1 – 3 and presented in a fully Covid secure way, this brand new puppetry tale aims to welcome the youngest audiences back to Z-arts this holiday time, with music, magic and a sprinkling of puppetry mayhem.

Dates TBA: watch this (Covid-secure) space.
