The Owl and The Pussycat
Arts Centre Washington
Wednesday 12th April 2017

Children’s theatre company Kitchen Zoo are bringing their first show, The Owl and The Pussycat, to Arts Centre Washington in April, in a spectacular adaptation of the classic poem which features puppetry and live music.

The North East based company are setting sail in their pea performing the children’s tale on green boat and will be 12th April 2017 at Arts Centre Washington and is perfect for children aged 3 – 7 years.

The Owl and the Pussycat live in a dull and dusty world, so imagine how shocked and surprised they are when a stupendous storm sweeps them out of the window, SPLASH!

On to an unexpected sea voyage to a curious land. But who will they meet? Which way should they go? And, what is a runcible spoon?

Kitchen Zoo is a duo made up of performers Bob Nicholson and Hannah Goudie, who have worked together since 2014 on various projects. The Owl and the Pussycat will be their first show as Kitchen Zoo and it has been developed in partnership with ARC, Stockton-on-Tees and The Witham, Barnard Castle.

Hannah described her excitement: “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to explore this brilliantly bizarre adventure by Edward Lear. There is such beauty in his storytelling and the language he uses which we are excited to bring to life through music and song as we work with the wonderfully talented Jeremy Bradfield as musician performer.”

Bob described the inspiration for the show: “This is a well known poem that appears to span generations and continue to capture our imagination. We are excited to address the many questions posed by the poem in our performance. How did these two creatures meet? Why did they go to sea? What is a bong tree? And many more...”
