A new online Hoglets play for 2021.

“The Moon has been watching the world since time began. I wonder how many stories it has to tell?”

Have you ever wondered why when the Moon is full, the shadow of a Hare is cast across its face? When a stranger wanders into the woods all the animals try to help them. But Hare has no gift to give. How far will she go to make another happy?

Hoglets Theatre will take you on a magical journey, exploring the true meaning of kindness using interactive storytelling, puppetry and live music.

Suitable for children aged 4-11 years old.

Running time: approx 30 minutes

THE HARE IN THE MOON can be booked for your school, group or venue for just £150 per live session. This includes an interactive workshop featuring active games and crafting based on the play.

Because of the online live-streamed format, performances can be:

  • booked for a single class up to an entire year group – capacity 500 children!
  • enjoyed by all your children whether they are in school or self-isolating / off in a bubble.
  • used to fuel further fun with craft worksheets sent to you to print out or be accessible online for those at home.
  • super safe – you will receive a private link and password and the Zoom platform we use has user controls fully locked down, is moderated throughout, and only Hoglets staff can unmute individual users.
