Details

“Even if you consider yourself a tortoise, this IS worth racing to see.”

Nottingham Post

“The world was winter: shivery and shaking…
Tortoise sleeping: sound and silent…
Hare was waiting, wishing, wondering
When will Tortoise wake?”

Hare is always in a rush. Everything is SOOOOO exciting! Tortoise, on the other hand, takes her time, notices the smallest of things and loves every minute, living life to the full.

Join us for this magical modern classic, and follow Hare and Tortoise through the seasons as their wintry world turns firstly to spring and then finally summer as the two friends get ready to race each other!

This fast (and slow!), fun-packed show about friendship, the passing of time, and the excitement of growing up combines live music, singing and a little help from the children along the way.
The perfect introduction to theatre, suitable for 4 to 8 year olds.
