Bunny and the Magic Hat

About the show

In a backstage dressing room, after a successful show, the magician lays down his black top-hat, hangs up his lustrous cloak, and exits his quarters. Suddenly, a hungry Bunny pops out of the hat. Realising he is alone, Bunny attempts to make the ever elusive carrot appear, using the magicians wand.

Unfortunately for Bunny his magic all seems to go horribly wrong, as he finds himself being chased by a vicious tropical fish, a pair of mischievous magic balls, and a terrifying tentacle from a denizen of the deep. What will Bunny do? How will he save himself and, most importantly, will he ever manage to get his carrot?!

Directed by Jess Mias-Jones, performed by Andy Jones and Sivuyile Gaji, Bunny and the Magic Hat is an original, 30 minute puppet theatre piece designed for children and adults aged 3 and up. The characters are gender neutral, with no dialogue; making Bunny a great show appropriate for children and adults of all cultures and languages.
