Mathilda and the Orange Balloon

Performed on Sat 2 Mar


Mathilda is a little grey sheep in a little grey world. Her herd is content to munch clovers, but Mathilda's mind is full of questions.

When an orange balloon makes a surprise appearance on the farm, Mathilda discovers there is more to who she is than being a grey sheep! As she explores what it means to be orange, Mathilda leads us all on a journey of self-discovery and the joys of self-expression. Join Mathilda, her herd, and our narrators on stage and see how, with a little imagination and a big open mind, anything is possible! With a diverse cast of Deaf and hearing actors, Mathilda's tactile, fully realised world is welcoming and fully accessible to Deaf and hearing children and families through the use of spoken English, sign language, and creative captions and animation.

Suitable for ages 3 - 8 and their families
