RETURNING to Bath’s Egg theatre, Snow Mouse is in its ninth season, running until Sunday 11th February. This “delightful” (The Stage) seasonal tale for the very young, is perfect for children aged from six months to four years old and their families.
Snow Mouse transports the audience to the snow-covered woods, where a child hurries to put on their winter clothes so they can run outside and play in a sparkly new world. Just as they are starting to feel a bit lonely, they find a sleeping mouse buried under the soft white flakes.
Sliding, tumbling and laughing, they explore the winter wonderland together and keep each other safe and warm from the winter freeze. Audiences can join two new friends on their adventures in a magical forest full of play, puppetry and music, in this performance awarded four stars in Time Out.
Snow Mouse is performed by Dan Armstrong and presented by The Egg together with Travelling Light Theatre Company. Original direction is by Nik Partridge, with rehearsal direction by Nikki Warwick. Design is by Edwina Bridgeman with puppetry by Marc Parrett and music by Alex Vann.
Actor and puppeteer, Dan Armstrong says: “It’s very exciting to step into such a magical and warm hug of a show. I’ve always admired the brilliant work for young audiences The Egg does and can’t wait to see the awe and wonder on the kids’ faces when they get to meet Snow Mouse.”
