"The world's supplies of happiness are running low and the HAPPINESS COLLECTORS need your help to top them up"
The Happiness Collectors need YOU! Pop on your headphones and join the Happiness Collectors on a journey of sounds and silliness to learn the best ways to collect happiness - and most important of all, how to pass it on!
Happiness Collectors is a fusion of physical theatre and audio-immersive storytelling for family audiences. Each audience member experiences the show through a set of wireless headphones, guided by their very own Happiness Collector Instructor, SAM, aka Special Agent M.
Happiness Collectors was originally developed with Tron Theatre.
Recommended for ages 4+
