You’ll be tapping those toes, singing along and laughing out loud in this shark-tacular, fin-tastic family musical, based on main character Timothy Pope. He’s going on an adventure with his Elvis-loving dad to test his new birthday telescope, and on their way they meet lots of quirky characters… yes, that is a tap-dancing seagull, (or is it?!) And what’s that he’s spotted? Is it a fin? Is it a Shark… in the Park?! Join Timothy and his dad and find out for yourselves.
