A Little Angel Theatre production

Based on the book by Tim Hopgood

“a thousand magical flourishes”
The Guardian

“a child-sized world of wonder”
The Stage

Explore the wonderful world of colours with a curious little owl, who is determined to stay awake and see what daylight brings.

From the warm, pink glow of dawn through to a day filled with the bright colours of green leaves, blue sky, white 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 storytelling, puppetry and music. Directed by Joy Haynes, this show will delight and excite very young audiences.

Join us for an interactive experience, delivered via Zoom, where you will be greeted by one of our talented performers, watch a recorded version of the show, and take part in games and activities. You can download our Zoom Policy here.
