A Barking community group hopes to inspire children to think inside the box.

Studio 3 Arts, in Boundary Road, are hosting BOX, a new show for ages two to five.

The production combines puppetry, music and humour to tell the tale of Rosa, a young girl worried about moving home.

Searching inside a magical box for her three favourite toys, Rosa gets swept away in an adventure over mountains and across seas.

Slowly, with the help of some new friends, she learns how to be brave.

Creators Liza Vallance and Del Taylor based the show on their own experiences of having children, and tried out ideas for songs and dialogue with family members.

“I think children (and grownups) are going to love it,” said Liza, who is also the arts group’s artistic director.

Performances run between December 12 and 16.
