Children’s theatre company Kitchen Zoo are bringing their first show, The Owl and The Pussycat, to The Witham in March, in a spectacular adaptation of the classic poem which features puppetry and live music. The North East based company are setting sail in their pea green boat and will be performing the children’s tale at 11am on 18th March at The Witham and is perfect for children aged 3 – 7 years.
The Owl and the Pussycat live in a dull and dusty world, so imagine how shocked and surprised they are when a stupendous storm sweeps them out of the window, SPLASH! On to an unexpected sea voyage to a curious land. But who will they meet? Which way should they go? And, what is a runcible spoon?
Kitchen Zoo is a duo made up of performers Bob Nicholson and Hannah Goudie, who have worked together since 2014 on various projects. The Owl and the Pussycat will be their first
show as Kitchen Zoo and it has been developed in partnership with ARC, Stockton-on-Tees and The Witham, Barnard Castle.
Hannah described her excitement: “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to explore this brilliantly bizarre adventure by Edward Lear. There is such beauty in his storytelling and the
language he uses which we are excited to bring to life through music and song as we work with the wonderfully talented Jeremy Bradfield as musician performer.”
