The Owl and the Pussycat

In a pea-green boat, an owl and a pussycat sail across the sea for a year and one day to fair Bong-tree Bay. Adventure calls, new encounters await and love conquers all in a nostalgic musical journey and irresistible blend of romance and nonsense.

The Owl and the Pussycat is an enchanting and intimate theatrical experience for families, based on Edward Lear’s beloved childhood poem. Created by a national team of award-winning artists for children 4–10 years, be swept away by this contemporary opera, featuring interactive theatre, puppetry and a troupe of musical puffins. This interactive journey inspires, educates and enthrals by inviting children and their families, carers and teachers to participate in multi-sensory ways to help our lovable duo reach their destination.
