Old Education


For children aged 3+

On tour until 21st August 2016

Oddly creatures in jars

A fun tale based on the much-loved children’s book written by author Joyce Dunbar. Norwich Puppet Theatre’s adaptation visually reimagines the story with a magical mix of puppetry, visual tricks, masks and original music.  

This story is about a curious boy from the city who sets off in search of three unusual creatures. Deep in a strange and tranquil forest he discovers the Lostlet, the Strangelet and the Oddlet. Together the new friends find surprising ways to make their hopes, dreams and wishes come true.

Directed by Joy Haynes

Designed, made and performed by Gretchen Maynard-Hahn

Music composed by Shane Connolly
