A puppet-based story based on much-loved children’s book and cartoon will be performed in North Somerset next month.
Mischief And Mystery In Moomin Valley will be at Theatre Shop in Queens Square, Clevedon, on April 7.
Based on Tove Jansson’s classic novels, the heart-warming show tells the story of Moomintroll – who wakes up in the middley of a harsh winter with an unnerving feeling something is wrong.
He has no idea where to find his good friend Snufkin or an important note.
But as the long, harsh winter turns to spring and the days extend into a lazy summer they are given everything they could wish for.
Mischief And Mystery In Moomin Valley has been created by theatre group Get Lost And Found, who were commissioned by Tove Jansson’s literary estate to design a new experience for children aged three to seven years old.
The story was designed in consultation with Tove’s niece, Sophia, and echoes the books’ themes of nature, friendship and the acceptance of differences.
Each part of the story has an interactive element including a snowball fight and toasting marshmallows around a fire.
The loveable characters are brought to life with both 2D and 3D puppets while Jansson’s iconic illustrations are recreated in a pop-up book.
The show also boasts original songs and music as well as an authentic pre-recorded narration.
Tickets, priced £8, are available to buy online.
