The Mousehole Cat
3:29pm Tuesday 2nd January 2007 in News
Saturday January 6 and Sunday January 7, the egg@Theatre Royal Bath.
This delightful adaptation of one of the classics of children's literature is a perfect back-to-school treat after the Christmas holiday!
The story of The Mousehole Cat, inspired by an old Cornish folk legend, is told through the eyes of Mowzer the cat, and set in the little Cornish fishing village of Mousehole where a storm has been raging for weeks.
Everyone is hungry as the boats cannot leave the harbour to fish, but Old Tom the fisherman and the faithful Mowzer brave the fury of the sea and the storm to try and save the village. The legend is still celebrated in the village every year.
This charming tale, based on Antonia Barber's award-winning book, is brought to life by one of Britain's most acclaimed puppet troupes, PuppetCraft, whose highly acclaimed production of Nobody Rides The Unicorn was a huge success in the egg in Easter 2006.
The Mousehole Cat uses carved wooden puppets, coloured shadows, a beautiful set, live music, song and sound effects, to create a delightful world and enthral audiences of children aged 4+ and their families.
The Mousehole Cat is being performed at the egg @ Theatre Royal Bath, on Saturday January 6 and Sunday, January 7.
Performances are at 11am and 2.30pm on Saturday, and midday and 3.30pm on Sunday. Tickets are on sale from the Theatre Royal Bath Box Office on (01225) 448844, or from the egg reception on (01225) 823409, priced at £7/£5 discounts.
