Wow! Said the Owl: Little Angel Theatre

Tickets: £7


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

Based on the book by Tim Hopgood
Adapted and directed by Joy Haynes
Creative Producer: Miranda Pitcher
Set and costumes designed by Fiammetta Horvat
Puppets designed and made by Keith Frederick
Music and lyrics by Dominic Sales

“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”.
“[A] cracking adaptation of Tim Hopgood’s picture book... [and a] warm and sparky show. (...) As director Joy Haynes’ production progresses, the set is flooded with colour, as the little owl (a fluff-ball puppet) discovers the bright-hued joys of the daytime.”
The Guardian
“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 (...), and flooding the stage with colour and light, especially when night falls and the last little Wow factor ends with a starry flourish”
