Now taking bookings for autumn 2023
Fun-loving puppy Oskar leaves the snowbound little house on top of the mountain to try to find a friendly animal to play with. But where are all the animals? And why does Oskar have to wait till spring to play his favourite game again?
This original play for young children uses a rich mix of storytelling, physical theatre, clowning, puppetry and music & song to tell the tale of a puppy’s search for friendship in the wilderness of the Alps.
★★★★★ “Outstanding. This was my own preschooler’s first ever live show and I am so massively grateful to Theatre Fideri Fidera for making it such a positive and memorable experience for us both. For pre-schoolers first noticing the big wide world (and for those of us privileged to attend them on their journey) the perspective offered is just right. The highest praise I can think of is to jump up and down in my seat squealing ‘Again! Again!’” Edinburgh 49 (August 2017)
★★★★★ “The energy and enthusiasm of the performer was staggering! She played many different parts with great results. The set was simple but effective with the changing seasons and the songs were catchy and fun.” Julie Sharp, Primary Times
“Combining brilliant storytelling, beautiful handmade stuffed animals and plenty of songs and actions for us all to join in with, this is a charming and thoughtful piece of theatre for younger children. Furry friends, foxes and fun for all the family, this delightful show is a real treat for everyone…”
An optional drama and arts & craft workshop is available after the performance with creative activities and games inspired by the theme of hibernation and the animals in the play. The workshop is for a maximum of 25 children aged 4 and over and lasts 40 minutes. See Photo Gallery - Workshop
