Little Angel Theatre presents
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.
WOW! Said the Owl is written and illustrated by Tim Hopgood. Illustrations from the book copyright ©Tim Hopgood. By permission of Macmillan Children’s Books.
Age guidance: 2 - 5 years
“Wow, wow and double wow. It’s all done with simple music, ribbons, shadows, a silken sheet, fairy lights, a few props, one actor and a puppet owl, all on a small white end-stage box. Magical…and joyful”. WhatsonStage
“A colourful character creates a child-sized world of wonder on a tiny puppet stage… Joy Haynes directs proceedings with an eye to short attention spans, changing perspectives (Little Owl is moved from her suspended nest, centre stage, to become a tiny owl perched on Wort’s ukulele), and flooding the stage with colour and light, especially when night falls and the last little Wow factor ends with a starry flourish” The Stage
“The simple story is brought to life with puppets, spoken word, song and the clever use of props hidden away in the roof and to the side of the stage to be brought out when their moment arrives. At just 30 minutes this show is perfect for an audience often too young to attend other children’s shows.” WestEndWilma
