Newhampton Arts Centre have released details of their upcoming children’s Christmas theatre show, with a specially adapted version of a much-loved children’s book, Moonbeam on a Cat's Ear (Voyage au Clair de Lune) by author and illustrator Marie-Louise Gay. This visual journey into an exciting world of dreams and imagination promises to delight Wolverhampton audiences and is set to be the perfect festive treat for families with younger children.

In the middle of the night Rosie,

Toby Toby, the cat and the mouse

sneak out to play in the shadow of

the apple tree.

When Toby Toby steals the moon from the sky they go on an adventure

across the stars and the sea.

But, was it all just a dream?

Jabuti Theatre’s adaptation for the stage captures the beauty and detail of the books’ original illustrations by using puppetry, physical theatre and magical light boxes.
