Wow! Said the Owl

This Christmas!

Fri 6 - Sun 29 Dec 2019 at NST City Studio

Recommended age: 2-5 years


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”.

“[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.”
