An Otter’s Tale
Oct 27 @ 15:00 – 16:00

“An Otter’s Tale” by Fat Cat Theatre Company

Three enchanting stories about the animals who live at Shapwick Nature Reserve in Somerset or: “Close encounters of the furred kind”

Running time: approx 55 minutes

This fantastic puppet show was commissioned and specially written for Natural England by Jane Leakey of Fat Cat Theatre Company. It tells the stories of some of the amazing animals who live at Shapwick Nature Reserve in Somerset and provides a fantastic opportunity to meet the inhabitants “up close and personal”.

Delightful puppets bring the story to life – including Jack the rat, Buddy the mink, Emily the watervole and Harry the heron. Jane spent many hours researching these wonderful creatures and then creating her fantastic puppets which both children and adults love.

Jane really enjoys performing the show: “Sometimes it is tricky to see animals in the wild. That is why puppets are so brilliant in giving children the opportunity to meet the local wildlife face to face. I find that young audiences gain a great deal of knowledge when they meet my characters, whilst having fun at the same time. Some young people, after viewing the show, are inspired to go to Shapwick to look at the real thing. And Shapwick is one of the best places in the UK to see otters.

Recommended for children aged four and over

This month is “Muppet Christmas Carol”

The Muppets perform the classic Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Other Muppets — Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle — weave in and out of the story, while Scrooge receives visits from spirits of three Christmases — past, present and future. They show him the error of his self-serving ways, but the miserable old man seems to be past any hope of redemption and happiness.
