Arts Alive is bringing The Hug, a family-friendly puppet show about two animals in search of a restorative hug, to Shropshire this April. On Thursday, April 6 it will be at The Hive in Shrewsbury and on Saturday, April 8 the show comes to SpArC Theatre in Bishops Castle.
This charming tale follows a hedgehog and a tortoise both looking for the right someone to give them a much-needed hug. They face many rejections along the way from a rather grumpy badger, a squirrel (who knows a lot about nuts), a shy frog, a fabulous fox and an owl who wants to be wise.
It’s a journey full of fun, laughter and love… and at the end, a very special hug from the puppets.
Based on, ‘The Hug’ by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar, and set to Tom Gray’s beautiful and witty music, The Hug is a tale of hope, empathy and acceptance and a heart-warming story love by children and adults alike.
Long Nose Puppets, the production team behind The Hug have produced four much-loved and critically acclaimed puppet shows for children since their launch in 2006. Ideal for ages 2-8, this would be a fun and local way to introduce your toddler or child to live theatre.
Tickets are available at artsalive.co.uk.
