This Diwali children’s theatre special tells a tale of Hanuman, the respected Monkey King, following the epic battle between good and evil on the island of Lanka, makes it his duty to save Ram’s brother, Lakshman. There is only one plant that can save him and when unable to identify it, Hanuman uses his strength to lift up a whole mountain and fly with it to Lakshman. Will he survive? Could you help Hanuman on his journey? (25 min)
The baby bundle of mischief, Hanuman, wanted to eat everything! To him the sun appeared as a bright, orange, ripe fruit. Leaping high into the air, Hanuman attempts to eat the sun. A comic take on one of the earliest Hanuman stories, lifts us up, celebrates the sun and teaches us a lesson. This loveable Monkey’s tale is told through puppetry, dance and play. (25 min)
There will be a craft activity during the interval (20 mins)
Brasshouse Cafe will be open selling indian style snacks from £1.00

MOONBEAM ON A CAT'S EAR
Showing Friday 29th November 2019 at 6.30pm
Based on the book by author and illustrator Marie-Louise Gay, Moonbeam on a Cat's Ear (Voyage au Clair de Lune) is a visual journey into an exciting world of dreams and imagination. This is a visual adventure with puppetry, movement, and music for children aged 3 and over.
In the middle of the night Rosie, Toby Toby, the cat and the mouse sneak out to play in the shadow of the apple tree. When Toby Toby steals the moon from the sky they go on an adventure across the stars and the sea.
But, was it all just a dream?
Jabuti Theatre’s adaptation captures the beauty and detail of Marie-Louise Gay’s illustrations using puppetry, physical theatre and magical light boxes and brings it all to life with a mesmerising original musical soundscape and score. Using only the text from the book, this is a simple, yet visually compelling story about two children and their adventure with the moon.
“It is an ingenious gem aimed at wee ones but a joy for anyone whose inner child still lurks near the surface.” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ – Irene Brown, Edinburgh Guide
