Pin-Pin The Eggsplorer

August 24, 2023 - August 27, 2023

Pin-Pin The Eggsplorer

Presented by Twisted Dog Theatre

Based on irresistible rhymes by Canadian storyteller Sally Jaeger
Original story by Natalie Khokhlova

For kids 0-5 years old

In a big bright world, a penguin chick hatches from an egg. He has to find out who he is and what his name is, and he will do so by going around half the globe. Along the way, he will try to make friends with the wise and the cunning, with the slow and the fast, with some kind and not-so-kind animals. Will they like him? And are they waiting for him?

The performance includes nursery rhymes, songs and poems lovingly created by the founder of the Canadian Association of Storytellers for Children, Sally Jaeger, as well as some brand new songs written by her exclusively for this show.

Even though the audience is the smallest, the scale of the performance is immense: 2 bright and talented actors, colourful shadow puppets, a beautiful hero penguin puppet, numerous songs and rhymes, heartfelt music and some interactive elements. All these extraordinary pieces will make your child’s first theatre experience joyful and memorable.
