THEATRE ROTTO brings a new puppet adventure following the travels of a jaunty wood frog who leaves her home when she leaps unsuspectingly into BIG Pond!
“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 Bulrush, 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?” THEATRE ROTTO brings a new puppet adventure following the travels of a jaunty wood frog who leaves her home when she leaps unsuspectingly into BIG Pond! On a hair-raising ride down Running River she encounters MR FISHER the Heron and HONK the Spotted Skunk in Wide Awake Wood where icy winter lurks. This charismatic and visual show is directed by Samuel Dutton - puppet captain at the RSC. The show is accompanied by live music and percussion from Chris Embury and storytelling and puppetry 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. # Don't forget to book for the after the show! Leaping Frog workshops allow children and older friends to create their own versions of characters featured in the show. It gives participants an opportunity to direct and produce their own mini performance as well as learn about the mechanics of puppet limbs. We supply all the arts and crafts materials at no additional cost to the receiver and these can be taken home as a souvenir.
