 Superhero, fugitive frog plumbers invite families across Wales to join them in their mission to crack a clogging crime and defeat the evil duck, Cwac Ty Bach.

After being locked up for a contamination crime they didn’t commit, the frogs escaped to the city sewers and are solving pollution problems wherever they go.

This hilarious, all-jumping, all-dancing show provides a ribbiting day out for all the family with great tunes courtesy of new music from talented Cardiff art-rock musicians Heledd Watkins and Sam Roberts (HMS Morris).

The froggy fun-fest is perfect for children aged 4+ of all abilities and presented both bilingually and Welsh only, Frogs in Bogs / Brogs y Bogs is a great introduction to theatre for young people.

Familia are promoting sustainability and the importance of looking after our environment, aiming to make the costumes and set out of 70% recycled materials, including a giant fish intricately crafted from plastic bags.

 This blockbusting show will be sure to delight families in unexpected places across Wales this summer. 

The ambitious amphibians are a cold-blooded lot so audiences can expect the show to go on come rain or shine (there are indoor alternatives available for each venue).

 Created by award-winning Carmarthenshire-based theatre company Familia De La Noche, with music by Heledd Watkins and Sam Roberts (HMS Morris), the show is supported by the Arts Council of Wales.
