THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF THE OWL AND THE PUSSY-CAT

Based on the book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Charlotte Voake.

A Little Angel Theatre and Royal & Derngate, Northampton co-production

Fri 27 September – Sun 17 November 2019
See Diary for performance times

Location: Theatre.


The Owl and the Pussy-cat sailed away
In a beautiful blue balloon.
They took some jam, and a honey-roast ham,
Which they ate with their runcible spoon.

When their beautiful golden ring is stolen, the Owl and the Pussy-cat must travel far from the safety of the Bong-tree glade as their search for the thief leads them across the Sea, to the Chankly Bore and beyond.

Find out what these two beloved characters did next and join them on a journey through a nonsensical land full of adventure.

Julia Donaldson and Charlotte Voake’s sequel to Edward Lear’s classic poem is brought to life on stage for the first time with stunning puppetry, enchanting rhyme and original music.


Age guidance:

The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussy-cat is aimed at ages 3 – 8. Younger children can enjoy the puppetry and visual imagery, and there is nonsense poetry and an epic journey across foreign lands for slightly older children to follow. There is nothing obviously scary in this show, but the unusual characters have not been designed to appeal to very small children, and they may have difficulty following the narrative.
