Pin-Pin The Eggsplorer

Theatre show for infants and toddlers (0+)

Presented by Twisted Dog Theatre

Twisted Dog Theatre is thrilled to announce the world premiere of "Pin-Pin the Eggsplorer", a new theatre production for children aged 0+. The show features irresistible rhymes by Canadian storyteller Sally Jaeger.

The story follows a penguin chick as he hatches from an egg and embarks on a journey to find out who he is and what his name is. Along the way, he meets a range of animals, both friendly and not-so-friendly, and tries to make friends with them. The performance includes nursery rhymes, songs, and poems created by Sally Jaeger, as well as brand-new songs written exclusively for this show.

The audience will sit in an open house-style decoration right on stage, with all the action shown on the walls of the house and in front of them. The performance features two bright and talented actors, colourful shadow puppets, a beautiful hero penguin puppet, numerous songs and rhymes, heartfelt music, and interactive elements.
