“ANIMAL MAGIC rivals WAR HORSE”
Children’s Touring Partnership presents
By Michael Morpurgo
In an adaptation by Samuel Adamson
Originally produced by Regent's Park Theatre and Chichester Festival Theatre
For Lilly, going to Indonesia isn’t just another holiday with mum. It’s a new start, and the chance to ride an elephant called Oona. But then the tsunami hit – and Oona charges
into the jungle, with her young rider desperately clinging on.
Directed by Dale Rooks and Timothy Sheader with puppetry design and direction by Finn Caldwell and Toby Olié, both previous Associate Puppetry Directors on War Horse, this epic and spectacular production tells an emotional and moving story of love, loss, loyalty and of living for the moment.
“A winner. The puppetry is exquisite, the magic really
hits you.” **** DAILY TELEGRAPH
