Mrs McMoon and Signor Baffo charm Stanley Halls’ audiences

Children’s theatre is coming to Stanley Halls on Saturday May 17.

Two professional theatre productions, Mrs McMoon (at 11.30am) and Signor Baffo (2pm) are being staged at the re-opened Norwood venue.

Mrs McMoonMrs McMoon is suitable for ages 3 to 6, and is a one-woman show which had a sell-out run at the Greenwich Theatre to great acclaim. Mrs McMoon asks all those coming to the show to “bring mischief, surprise and laughter. Singing flowers, scrumulumptious biscuits and a Scottish jig are all just a door knock away.”

Set in the warm surroundings of her cosy old living room where tea is brewing and the smell of freshly baked cookies tickle your nostrils, let a sweet old lady take you by the hand to explore a world of brave and daring adventures.

Signor Baffo is intended for children aged 5 to 8.

How do you make a chicken lay an egg, and how does a sausage roll? All is revealed in the charming culinary chaos of Signor Baffo’s kitchen.

Both plays are from Worboys Productions, a new independent theatre producer,specialising in the development and touring of new work.

  • Tickets for each production are £8 adults and £5 children. Tickets are available from, or by calling our box office on 0333 666 3366 (9am-7pm Mon-Fri; 9am-5pm Sat). Groups of 10 or more can be booked by emailing
