Moominsummer Madness

Everyone's favourite Swedish/Finnish cartoon creation the Moomins get a stage outing here courtesy of Phil Porter and the Little Angel Theatre. Tove Jansson's original story is adapted by Porter to bring the weird white bear-type creatures to life as puppets in Moominvalley. This looks like a fun, summer-tinged meta-theatrical affair where the Moomins find a new home - a floating theatre - after Moomin valley is swept away by a flood. Ages 4-8.
