Little Angel transports the audience to Kenya for this charming tale of a young girl and her animal friends.

Handa takes a basket of delicious fruits to the next village as a surprise for her best friend. But along the way a mischievous collection of animals have other plans for the plump, ripe fruits.

The show combines wooden puppets, props, traditional instruments and rousing African songs to create a mesmerising feast that unfolds seamlessly around the audience.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
