Studio Theatre

Explore the wow-world of colours with this curious little owl who is determined to stay awake to see what day light brings.
From the warm pink glow of dawn through to a day filled with the bright colours of green leaves, blue sky, grey clouds and, finally, a stunning rainbow — ‘WOW!’. But despite the beauty of the daytime world, the little owl decides that the night-time stars are the most beautiful of all.
WOW! Said the Owl, the acclaimed children’s book by award winning author Tim Hopgood, is brought to life through a blend of beautiful story-telling, puppetry and music. Directed by Joy Haynes, this show will delight and excite children aged 2-5yrs.
Suitable for everyone over the age of 2yrs – “this show charms young and old alike.”

'Wow, wow and double wow. It’s all done with simple music, ribbons, shadows, a silken sheet, fairy lights, a few props, one actor and a puppet owl, all on a small white end-stage box. Magical...and joyful'. WhatsonStage

'[A] cracking adaptation of Tim Hopgood’s picture book... [and a] warm and sparky show...Fiametta Horvat’s set is essentially a blank page: a canopied stage-space washed in white. As director Joy Haynes’ production progresses, the set is flooded with colour, as the little owl (a fluff-ball puppet) discovers the bright-hued joys of the daytime'.The Guardian

'A colourful character creates a child-sized world of wonder on a tiny puppet stage... Joy Haynes directs proceedings with an eye to short attention spans, changing perspectives (Little Owl is moved from her suspended nest, centre stage, to become a tiny owl perched on Wort’s ukulele), and flooding the stage with colour and light, especially when night falls and the last little Wow factor ends with a starry flourish'.
