The Owl and the Pussycat

Ages 5-11
Duration 30 - 40 Mins
Cast Size 15–30+
Musical Styles Tango, Sea Shanty, Hoedown and Ballad
An odd couple in a pea green boat!

This quirky musical is based on Edward Lear’s nonsense poem explores differences, similarities and cooperation in an amusing way.
With a witty, rhyming script, lively songs and dances for a variety of choruses, it is ideal for Primary Schools – Key stages 1 and 2.

An impulsive young Owl and Pussycat decide to sail away together, much to the disapproval of their friends and relations. When the going gets tough at sea the Owl is tempted to fly off! But once they land, they have a slap-up wedding attended by a Turkey and Piggywig and they all dance the tango! Some years later in their old age, assisted by their Owl-Cat child, they run a seaside hotel.
