THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT
By Lisa Cheney and Kathryn Marquet
In a pea green boat, an owl and a pussycat sail across the sea for a year and a day to fair Bong-tree Bay. Adventure calls, new encounters await and love conquers all in a nostalgic musical journey with an irresistible blend of romance and nonsense.
The Owl and the Pussycat is an enchanting and intimate theatrical experience for families. Be swept away in this all-new opera with stunning vocals, interactive theatre and a troupe of musical Puffins. Aboard a magical pea green boat, this charming work explores the universal themes of love, harmony and acceptance.
