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.
Our vision and mission was to create a piece of high quality puppet theatre for all children to enjoy, no matter what their social, cultural or economic background.
The show has been met with huge enthusiasm and delight from both audiences at Stonehurst Mountain Estate, as well as Tygerberg Hospital School.
Kids from these two completely different communities shrieked and laughed with joy and investment throughout the performances proving, with the bluntest honesty that only a child can have, that Bunny and the Magic Hat truly is a show for all kids from all walks of life.
