The Magical Playroom

The Magical Playroom with CBeebies’ Cerrie Burnell

Following the conclusion of its successful summer/Autumn 2013 premiere tour, this production is not currently available.

This delightful new show for children aged 3 to 6 is written and performed by popular CBeebies presenter Cerrie Burnell, with direction by Hal Chambers and original music specially composed by Bill McGruddy.


Cerrie plays Liberty Rose, or Libby to her friends. She dreams of becoming a ballerina like her mum before her. But when she’d told to wear a false arm for dancing lessons, Libby rebels, seeking escape in her favourite playroom. Suddenly, the toys magically come to life around her. Will Libby’s new friends be able to help her to become a famous ballerina?

‘It would be hard to find a children’s presenter more perfect than Burnell – she can sing and dance, she is beautiful, with a wide, open childlike face, and she radiates a rare goodness.’ The Guardian

‘Perfectly combines a delightful story and catchy energetic music.’ Primary Times on a previous production directed by Hal Chambers

Running time 55 minutes, most suitable for ages 3 to 6.
