    Price:  £5.00 presents 'Leaping Frog'

    Saturday 22nd February 2020 at 2pm

    A show with puppets and live music From the quill of Julia Dunbar McLean

    ‘Goggles’ the wood frog croons her jelly tadpoles asleep – but that’s before a BOING and a DOING on the yellow pond lily catapults  her from Little Pond into a much bigger one!  First up, she meets BEARDO the Bullrush, who offers three pieces of advice. But leaping before she looked, nothing has prepared Goggles for - the deep Freeze!  Can she ever return home again?

                 “First rate storytelling, music, visual thrills and above all else – magic!”

    THEATRE ROTTO brings us - a new puppet adventure following the journey of GOGGLES a jaunty wood frog who leaps unsuspecting from Little Pond into - BIG Pond! Here on a hair raising ride down Running River she encounters -  Beardo the Bullrush, Mr Fisher the Heron  - and Honk the Spotted Skunk in Wide Awake Wood where icy Winter lurks.

    This charismatic and visual show directed by Samuel Dutton is accompanied with live music and percussion from Chris Embury and storytelling and puppets by Julia Dunbar McLean. Along the way LEAPING FROG takes children on a natural history journey in a series of tantalising visual scenes created by Peter Quinnell.

     “Lovely  - the children were mesmerized from beginning to end!”

    Age suitability - Children 3+ and their families
