The Owl and the Pussycat

A classic tale adapted from the poem by Edward Lear by Tim Bray
Lyrics by Christine White
Music by Margie Gemmell

The owl and the pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat
They took some honey
And plenty of money
Wrapped up in a five pound note.

The wonderfully quirky and nonsense poem comes to life on stage with all the fun of the turkey who lives on the hill and the piggy-wig with the ring at the end of his nose, his nose, his nose ...

A short story of approx 45 mins, with songs. For children up to 10 years, however, everyone is welcome.
