A magical new Hoglets play for Winter 2020.

A winter tale of magic, trolls and love overcoming all!

Hoglets Theatre presents a special Christmas show for our strange times.

Based on the Norwegian folk story East of the Sun and West of the moon, this beautiful tale has been lovingly rewritten to become a magical storytelling experience.
Using live music, puppetry and interactive storytelling Hoglets theatre will beam this tale of kindness, magic and love overcoming adversity, live directly into your classroom or home.
Each show booked will be accompanied by a shadow puppet making workshop, which lets your children learn how the beautiful puppets and magical effects in the show were created and then make them for themselves.

Suitable for children aged 4-11 years old.

Running time: approx 45 minutes (including workshop).

THE SNOW BEAR can be booked for your school, group or venue for just £150 per live session.

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.
