Storm!  Shipwreck!  Adventure!  Lost on an island in the very north of the world, a brave little girl meets a shy, curious creature... Not only does he look very odd, he sounds different too! 

Meet the Skitterbang. In his cave full of old metal and junk washed up from the sea, he shows her his newest treasure which sounds so beautiful. But who does it really belong to?

Join us for an exciting tale of discovery and friendship as we journey to a magical world of music, song, rhythm and harmony. Following sell-out performances at Polka in 2010, the critically acclaimed Skiterbang Island sails back for an enchanting summer treat with a difference.
