Little Angel Theatre today announce their upcoming Spring / Summer 2023 season, including:
The Flying Bath features a gang of quirky bath toys on an adventure of a lifetime in this retelling of Julia Donaldson and David Robert’s fun-loving tale. From 11 February – 23 April 2023 at Little Angel Studios.
Brand-new production The Instrumentals, a co-production with Goblin Theatre, Blouse and Skirt Theatre Company and Mercury Theatre, aims to fill the soul with love, laughter and music, with stories taking inspiration from the African-Caribbean Diasphora. From 10 February – 16 April at Little Angel Theatre.
The Wolves in the Walls, a co-production with Bristol Old Vic and York Theatre Royal, adapted by Toby Olié from Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean’s spine-tingling tale about standing up for what you believe in returns for ages 6+. From 12 May – 23 July 2023 at Little Angel Theatre.
A starry-eyed owl stays up all night in Wow! Said the Owl, a Little Angel Theatre production based on the beloved children’s book written by Tim Hopgood. Children will have the chance to experience the vibrant cycles of night and day in this colourful tale. From 19 May – 30 July 2023 at Little Angel Studios.
As part of London International Mime Festival, visiting company String Theatre will perform A Water Journey, a wordless play which explores themes of displacement, exile, and the importance of solidarity and friendship in caring for our Earth. From 3 – 5 February 2023 at Little Angel Theatre.
And across the country Little Angel’s hit production I Want My Hat Back Trilogy goes on its first UK tour while other productions on the road in 2023 include The Singing Mermaid, The Instrumentals, King of Nothing, If Not Here… Where? and The Smartest Giant in Town (currently running in the West End).
Little Angel Theatre Artistic Director Samantha Lane and Executive Director Peta Swindall introduces the new season:
‘Our Spring 2023 season is jam-packed with new work, fantastic visiting companies and another chance to enjoy some much-loved Little Angel classics. A highlight for the new year will be ‘The Instrumentals’ which premieres in February. This joyful production is bursting with love, laughter and soulful music to inspire young audiences.
We’re also delighted Toby Olié’s brilliant adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean’s fantasy ‘The Wolves in the Walls’ is returning for a full run in May after the production was cut short when theatres closed because of Covid in March 2020.
Our work is once again reaching far beyond our Islington home to children all across the country with ‘I Want My Hat Back Trilogy’, ‘The Singing Mermaid’, ‘King of Nothing’, ‘The Smartest Giant in Town’, ‘The Instrumentals’ and ‘If Not Here… Where? all out on tour.
Closer to home, we want to make sure everyone in our community can enjoy our work and in 2023 we aim to provide over 1,000 free tickets to families on state benefits to enjoy a free, fun day out filled with the magic of live puppetry. We will also be giving away 4,500 tickets to pupils at our local schools (including our eight partner schools) as part of our ‘#PuppetsForAll scheme.’
