For the first time ever, the children's TV programme Fifi and the Flowertots, will be appearing live on stage at the Queen's Theatre in Barnstaple on Sunday, May 24 and Monday, May 25.The hit TV series is the brainchild of Bob The Builder creator Keith Chapman. It first aired on Channel Five and Nick Jr in 2005, and has since become a huge success across the world, appealing to children aged between two and seven.The stage production, called The Fairy and the Flowertots, follows the story of Clairy Fairy, a fairy who is blown off course and lands in Flowertot Garden.

The enchanting 90-minute show presented by Premier Productions is full of music, fun and audience participation as Fifi, Violet, Primrose, Bumble, Stingo and Slugsy join together to help their new found fairy friend. Greg Lynn, managing director of Chapman Entertainment and show co-producer, said: "The Fairy and the Flowertots introduces children to the delights of live theatre. This is the first time that a number of characters from the programme will make a public appearance and we are really proud of this production. It is a lot of fun and we know kids and parents alike are going to enjoy it!" Come along and join in the fun on a marvellous, magical, musical journey, featuring Fifi and her much-loved friends.
