In the middle of the night Rosie, Toby Toby, the cat and the mouse sneak out to play in the shadow of the apple tree. When Toby Toby steals the moon from the sky they go on an adventure across the stars and the sea. But, is it all just a dream?
Based on the book by author and illustrator Marie-Louise Gay, Moonbeam on a Cat’s Ear is a visual journey into an exciting world of dreams and imagination. Jabuti Theatre’s adaptation captures the beauty and detail of Marie-Louise’s illustrations using puppetry, physical theatre and magical light boxes and brings it all to life with a mesmerising original musical soundscape and score. Using only the text from the book, this is a simple, yet visually compelling story about two children and their adventure with the moon.
Jabuti Theatre aim to entertain, educate and inspire creativity in people of all ages from all backgrounds using innovative, engaging and accessible theatre.
Rachael Macintyre, Artistic Director, has an incredible enthusiasm for nurturing creativity through performance as well as a strong interest in cross artform collaboration. From her multi-disciplinary background come performances, workshops and installations that engage and inspire.
