Handa’s Surprise
Wednesday 22 May – Sunday 23 June

Recommended for ages 2-5

Travel to Kenya and follow in Handa’s footsteps as she journeys to see her best friend Akeyo, in the next village. Handa is taking seven delicious fruits as a surprise – but seven different animals have seven very different ideas… could you resist the sweet-smelling guava? How about a ripe red mango or a tangy purple passion fruit?

A blend of physical performance, puppetry, live music and song combine to create an intimate, magical production with audience participation. Come and share in the magical tangerine surprise!

Handa’s Surprise is aimed at ages  2 - 5. The small audience sit on cushions and mats around the stage for an intimate experience, and there is a chance to join in the dancing at the end.

This play is based on the original book Handa’s Surprise, written and illustrated by Eileen Browne. Published by Walker Books Ltd.

Approximately 35 minutes
