In a pea green boat, an owl and a pussycat sail across the sea for a year and a day to fair Bong-tree Bay. Adventure calls, new encounters await and love conquers all in a nostalgic journey and irresistible blend of romance and nonsense.
The Owl and the Pussycat is an enchanting and intimate theatrical experience for families, based on Edward Lear’s beloved poem. Aboard a magical pea green boat, this charming musical work explores the universal themes of love, harmony and acceptance with live vocals, puppetry, interactive theatre and a troupe of musical Puffins.
“…they twisted the traditional opera sound into something a little experimental, a bit different, and a lot entertaining.” Aussie Theatre
