A family-friendly show will be performed in Clevedon next month.

Mumblecrust Theatre, which use puppets to great effect, will be staging their new The Time Machine at Theatre Shop, in Queens Square.

It is a superpower many people would love to have as people wish to travel back in time to explore the past, or whizz forward and see how the Earth and humans evolve in the future.

Time Machine sees a Victorian inventor perfect his creation, enabling people to visit the future.

But what world awaits him 800,000 years from now?

A dreamlike paradise is what he emerges into, with cute Teddy Bear-like creatures roaming the world.

But could everything be too good to be true? Are there hidden evils despite the great outward appearance?

The show draws inspiration from one of the greatest sci-fi writers of all time, in H G Wells, by adapting his famous novel.

Mumblecrust has won a number of plaudits over the years and was behind the successful run The Tale Of The Cockatrice had two years ago in Clevedon.

The Time Machine will be staged at Theatre Shop on April 19 and 20. Shows will start at 2pm and 5pm.

Tickets, priced £5, are available at www.theatreshop.org.uk or on 03336 663366.

The show is recommended for people aged four or older.

The Times has teamed up with Theatre Shop to offer two lucky readers the chance to win two pairs of tickets to see The Time Machine take to the stage on April 19 at 2pm.

To enter the competition, simply answer the following question: How many years into the future does the Victorian inventor travel in The Time Machine?
