The Owl and The Pussycat
By Lisa Cheney and Kathryn Marquet
From Little Match Productions
In a pea green boat, an owl and a pussycat sail across the sea for a year and a day to fair Bong-tree Bay. Adventure calls, new encounters await and love conquers all in a nostalgic musical journey and irresistible blend of romance and nonsense.
The Owl and the Pussycat is an enchanting and intimate theatrical experience for families, based on Edward Learís beloved childhood poem. Created by a national team of award-winning artists for children 4-10 years, be swept away in this all-new opera, featuring stunning vocals, interactive theatre, puppetry and a troupe of musical Puffins.
This interactive journey inspires, educates and enthrals by inviting children, alongside their families, carers and teachers, to participate in musical and multi-sensory ways to help our lovable couple reach their destination. Aboard a giant magical pea green boat, meet our pairís colourful and eccentric new friends, as they are brought to life on deck.
Ahoy! Come set sail with this charming show and landmark music work for children that explores the universal themes of love, adventure, harmony and acceptance. You might even meet a honey-hooked Sea Bear, an itty bitty Kitty and a punky Piggy Wig.
On Thursday 8th July at 4pm, children are invited to participate in an accompanying music workshop. Play percussion instruments and explore the show's themes of harmony, adventure and acceptance. To book the workshop + show package click here. *Only available with Thursday performance.
Or, on Friday 9th July at 11am, join us for a free origami boat-making workshop. Stay after the 10am show or come early for the 12pm performance.
