Extra Yarn

Tarek is delighted that this Christmas he will be joining the cast of Extra Yarn at the Orange Tree theatre in Richmond, where he will be working with composer Tom Deering and director Imogen Bond to lead the music in performance and tell this beautiful story based on the book by Mac Barnett, illustrated by Jon Klassen.
