Meet the Moomins on a summer musical adventure in Moominsummer Madness!

Breathtaking puppetry, live music and humour bring Tove Jansson’s much-loved Moomins to life on stage.

When a huge flood sweeps through Moominvalley, the Moomins find an exciting new home… a floating theatre!

But why is there a door in the floor? Why does the scenery start changing? And where do Moomintroll, Little My and Snork Maiden disappear to? As strange things start to happen it seems the only way to bring the family back together is to put on a play!

Tove Jansson’s adorable Moomin characters have charmed children for generations. Now, one of her most popular stories jumps from page to stage for the perfect summer family treat.

Moominsummer Madness is part of Tove100, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of Tove Jansson. The show is recommended for children aged four to eight-years-old.
