Join Kitchen Zoo under the silver moon, at the foot of a snowy mountain, surrounded by woolly sheep. The village is happy, the sheep are happy and all is well…until Jack shouts “WOLF!” Did Jack really see a wolf? Or is she causing trouble again?
Inspired by Aesop’s classic fable The Boy Who Cried Wolf, WOLF! is a woolly adventure with original music and puppets. It is recommended for children under five and their families; all performances are relaxed.
Kitchen Zoo are theater makers Bob Nicholson and Hannah Goudie-Hunter. WOLF! is conceived and written by Bob and Hannah, as well as director Brad McCormick, who also directed The Three Bears at Christmas. Original music and songs are by award-winning Northeast singer-songwriter Katie Doherty, with puppets by Ailsa Dalling (The Dancing Frog, Kneehigh).
Hannah says: “We grew up hearing the story of the boy who cried wolf and were thrilled to find out what really happened on top of that mountain. We can’t wait to bring this winter’s tale to life in a world of white snow, woolly sheep and the whispers of a wolf…”
Bob adds: “It was wonderful to be able to put Kitchen Zoo’s perspective on this classic tale – one of Aesop’s fables – and I can’t wait to go on this woolly, wintry adventure with everyone, with a little help from Barbara and Colin the sheep.”
WOLF! visible at the SJT at 2 p.m. on Wednesday April 20 and at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Thursday April 21.
