Fresh from his new CBeebies series, Andy’s Wild Adventures, the BAFTA Award nominated CBeebies presenter Andy Day and his comedy partner Mike James are on tour in a show for the whole family which is promising music, laughs, wigs, eye-patches, boats, planes, suspense and of course, a big box of bananas!
A magical and mysterious box appears in Mike and Andy’s ‘fun pad’, but try as they might they can’t open it. The boys must journey the skies and seas to try to find the password to the box, but they will never manage it without an audience of house sitters to help!
They invite you to join them on their colourful quest, meet all-singing all-dancing air stewards, confused pirates and some amazing musical sea life.
Andy and Mike James, are childhood friends and comedy partners and have worked extensively together in theatre shows including playing the ugly sisters in Cinderella (Pantoni Pantomimes).
They have created a show full of slapstick, songs and stories with Iain Lauchlan, one of the creative minds behind acclaimed and award-winning shows including Tweenies and Fun Song Factory.
Young children will recognise Andy if they watch CBeebies as he has been a presenter for over three years. During his time on the channel he has enjoyed appearing in its Christmas pantomime and on CBeebies radio.
He hosts the educational radio play Playtime for pre school children and is currently starring in 40 episodes of his own series, Andy’s Wild Adventures. His work onstage includes national tours with Lazy Town stars Stephanie and Sporticus in the Jump Up Tour (for Nick Junior) and he has recently been seen in the CBeebies Live Reach to the Stars tour.
Mike’s children’s theatre work includes Goldilocks And The Three Bears, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk and Babes in the Wood (all Pantoni Pantomimes). His TV credits include; Upstaged (BBC), Sports Relief (BBC) and The Bill (ITV). Films includes; Still Life (Harry Richards), Death of a Whale (Dead Bulb Productions), and Would Like To Meet (Too Many Cooks).
The show is recommended for those aged four to 104 who like to use their imaginations and to laugh!
