Puppet Show BUNNY AND THE MAGIC HAT Set to Entertain Families at the Masque Theatre this Winter Holiday
The Masque Theatre is proud to announce that the BUNNY AND THE MAGIC HAT is set to delight family audiences this winter holiday. This magnificent family puppet theatre show is presented by SHRiNKray Puppets.
In a backstage dressing room after a successful show, a magician lays down his black top-hat, hangs up his lustrous cloak, and exits his quarters. Suddenly, a hungry Bunny pops out of the hat. Realising he is alone, Bunny attempts to make the ever elusive carrot appear, using the magician's wand. Unfortunately for Bunny, his magic all seems to go horribly wrong, and he finds himself being chased by a vicious tropical fish, a pair of mischievous magic balls, and a terrifying tentacle from a denizen of the deep. What will Bunny do? How will he save himself and, most importantly, will he ever manage to get his carrot?
Directed by Jess Mias-Jones, and performed by Andy Jones and Sivuyile Gaji, BUNNY AND THE MAGIC HAT is an original, 35-minute puppet theatre piece designed for children of ages 3 and up, as well as the adults that accompany them to the theatre. The characters are gender neutral, with no dialogue, making BUNNY AND THE MAGIC HAT a great show appropriate for audiences of all cultures and languages.
In the making of BUNNY AND THE MAGIC HAT, SHRiNKray Puppets articulated the vision and mission of creating a piece of high-quality puppet theatre for everyone to enjoy, no matter what their social, cultural or economic background. The show has been met with tremendous enthusiasm and delight from both audiences at Stonehurst Mountain Estate, as well as Tygerberg Hospital School. Audiences from these two entirely different communities shrieked and laughed with joy and investment throughout the performances proving, with the blunt honesty of a child, that BUNNY AND THE MAGIC HAT truly is a show for audiences from all walks of life.
After the show, stay for a meet and greet with Bunny and the rest of the puppet cast! Kids and adults are welcome to have a close up look at the puppets and the travelling set, take photographs and share the memory of this magical puppetry experience with friends and family.
