The Hare & The Moon – Suitcase Theatre Show

The Hare and The Moon Suitcase Theatre is our Hare & Moon story, performed in miniature on beautiful sets built within a vintage suitcase. The tale is told through puppetry, spoken word and music.

Your audience will meet adventurous Hare and her patient friend Moon in this short piece of less than 5 minutes duration. Children and adults alike will be charmed by this enchanting story of night skies, light and the joy of friendship.

The Hare and The Moon Suitcase Theatre is engaging for smaller audiences, and ideally suited to venues where an audience is likely to be required to move on after 5-10 minutes.
