Fuel presents And the Rain Falls Down

From the creators of Brilliant and The Forest, And the Rain Falls Down is a show about drips, drops, and downpours…

Imagine a world where every drop of water has a life of its own…

A world where rainbows form from umbrellas, where fountains spurt from plugholes, and where eventually the rain really does fall down. Revel in puddles of fun in this magical treat, featuring rather a lot of water!

Created especially for 3 and 4 year olds, And the Rain Falls Down is a visually stunning celebration of the watery things in the world.
