Norwich Puppet Theatre adapts ODDLY by Joyce Dunbar

Children's Books

An adaptation of Oddly by Joyce Dunbar will be playing at Norwich Puppet Theatre from Saturday 25th July.

Three unusual creatures hold onto their special treasures and ponder questions which they are unable to answer…

The Lostlet twirls a golden leaf and asks what do I hope for?
The Strangelet holds a smooth white pebble and wonders what do I dream of? 
The Oddlet listens to a seashell and thinks what do I wish for?

Suddenly a little boy appears who seems stranger, odder and even more lost than they are. Together the new friends find surprising ways to make their hopes, dreams and wishes come true.

Using original music and puppets based on Joyce’s text this promises to be a lovely re-visualisation of the book suitable for ages 3+ and a great summer holiday activity. The show runs from 25th July to 5th August and tickets are available here.
