How to Hide a Lion

Helen Stephens' rip-roaring story about hiding a lion and finding a friend.

26 Oct - 26 Feb

Adventure Theatre Ages
3 - 6

Based on the book by Helen Stephens 

When a lion is chased out of town, a young girl helps him find somewhere to hide. It’s not easy – lions are too big, too fluffy and too heavy!

Join Iris on a mission to squeeze and squash her furry new friend into a variety of sneaky spots, as Helen Stephen’s magical book comes to life with playful humour, dazzling puppetry and original songs.

Adapted by Peter Glanville (the director behind the recent sell-out stage productions of The Paper Dolls and We’re Going on a Bear Hunt), with beautiful music by acclaimed singer-songwriter Barb Jungr.
