Moonbeam On A Cat’s Ear

Showing: 14/12/2019 to 15/12/2019

We’re very excited to present our Christmas show from Jabuti Theatre: a perfect seasonal theatre treat for families with younger children. This specially adapted version of much-loved children’s book by author and illustrator Marie-Louise Gay, Moonbeam on a Cat’s Ear is a not to be missed visual journey into an exciting world of dreams and imagination. 

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 (original in English and French, can also be offered in Scottish Gaelic) this is a simple, yet visually compelling story about two children and their adventure with the moon.

Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of December with morning and afternoon showtimes at 11am & 2pm.

Ticket prices: Adult £6 / Child £4 / Family of 4 = £18
