‘Wow, wow and double wow. It’s all done with simple music, shadows, a silken sheet, fairy lights, a few props, one actor and a puppet owl. Magical…and joyful’. WhatsonStage
Explore the wow-world of colours with this curious little owl who is determined to stay awake to see what day light brings.
From the warm pink glow of dawn through to a day filled with the bright colours of green leaves, blue sky, grey clouds and, finally, a stunning rainbow — ‘WOW!’. But despite the beauty of the daytime world, the little owl decides that the night-time stars are the most beautiful of all.
Wow! Said the Owl, the acclaimed children’s book by award winning author Tim Hopgood, is brought to life through a blend of beautiful story-telling, puppetry and music. Directed by Joy Haynes, this show will delight and excite children aged 2-5yrs.
