Dommy B is the name Dominic goes by when touring work for family audiences in theatres, schools, arts centres and festivals.
The shows are generally aimed at anyone age 5+ (though specific performances for younger crowds can be staged on request).
“We loved having Dominic in school sharing ‘When Trolls Try to Eat Your Goldfish’. This was a rare show that delighted and engaged Reception Class, challenged KS1’s preconceptions, got Year 6 involved and interested and had the adults in stitches too. An author visit that feels more like a comedy show, but still has the children asking thoughtful questions. Highly recommended.”

The Dommy B show, When Trolls Try To Eat Your Goldfish, funded by Action Transport Theatre, Big Imagination and Grants for the Arts, has been directed by Kevin Dyer and designed by Bek Palmer.
This hilarious and action packed adventure features music by multi-instrumentalist Vela Vox – and of course Dommy B’s trademark madcap rhymes!
In the middle of the night there is a noise – a snuffling and a shuffling and a splintering of wood. A line of troll-prints lead out the door, across the lawn and into the deep, dark forest.
When a grotesque gang of greedy trolls steal all the village’s pets (including Nikki’s favourite goldfish, Great Bumbleduke the Third), who is going to come to the poor animals’ rescue?
