Manxmouse: The Mouse Who Knew No Fear
Theatergroep Kwatta (Netherlands)
The Manxmouse is one-of-a-kind. He’s the strangest little mouse you’ll ever see, with bright blue fur, huge rabbit ears and a distinct lack of tail. But Manxmouse doesn’t mind being different. He knows that destiny awaits him, and so Manxmouse sets out on an exciting adventure. He meets tigers and hawks and dastardly pet-shop owners, but there’s someone he dreads and desires to meet more than anyone else. The someone who has been waiting for him all along…the Manx Cat.
Based on the novel Manxmouse by Paul Gallico.
Please note: all children who enter the theater for this production must have a ticket and be at least three years old.
