    The Little Engine That Could
    A fun and engaging performance based on the perennial kids’ favourite, The Little Engine That Could. When a happy locomotive pulling a toy train breaks down, the toys try to find another engine to take them up and over the mountain. They ask the pompous passenger engine, the powerful freight engine and the old steam loco but it’s the little blue shunting engine who saves the day. This classic story of the power of optimism and persistence is brought to life to charm and delight visitors of all ages. Following the show, make your own Little Engine to go up and over the mountain. “I think I can, I think I can…” Presented in conjunction with the Eaton Gorge Theatre Company.
