Old Mother Hubbard and her Cupboard

Event information

This fabulous retelling of the classic nursery rhyme, of a dotty old woman and her dancing dog, is a real delight and comes with a clutch of rave reviews. Featuring exquisite puppetry, pantomime, slapstick, interaction, musical treats and the occasional scare (in a good way), this terrific show is an ideal first theatrical experience for young children. 'A fascinating new dramatization demonstrating Garlic's flair for comedy.' Time Out ______________________________________________________________________ The ever-reliable and award-winning Garlic Theatre with a delightful family puppet show for the very young and their families. Old Mother Hubbard went to her cupboard to fetch her poor dog a bone, but when she got there, the cupboard was bear (Whoops, was that a spelling mistake?) (No, actually, it wasn't!) Dotty Old Mother Hubbard clatters about in her kitchen, making a cake in order to go to a birthday party. And her dancing dog Oscar sniffs out trouble in the most unlikely places. But what happens when a naughty bear misappropriates her ingredients? An amazing feast of well crafted puppets (glove, rod and shadow), slapstick clowning, musical treats and fabulous jokes (spoken and visual), this a fresh and funny adaptation to delight children and adults alike. Garlic Theatre is an international award winning puppet company based in Norfolk. Its innovative theatre work encourages imaginative play for the early years in schools and delights family audiences in the UK and around the world. 'Old Mother Hubbard' is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. ______________________________________________________________________
