Manxmouse: The Mouse Who Knew No Fear
At Segerstrom Center for the Arts – Samueli Theater
Meet Manxmouse, the loveable and distinct looking, one-of-a-kind mouse who lacks
a tail, has bright blue fur and huge rabbit ears. Manxmouse does not mind being different and displays great confidence and bravery while setting out on an exciting new adventure and coming face to face with destiny.
Based on the novel Manxmouse by Paul Gallico, Theatergroep Kwatta performs the delightful tale of Manxmouse: The Mouse Who Knew No Fear, making its North American debut at Segerstrom Center for the Arts October 18 & 19 in Samueli Theater.
During this exciting journey, Manxmouse encounters tigers and hawks, terrified elephants, fearsome foxes and scheming pet shop owners, but there is still someone he dreads and yet longs to meet more than anyone else. That someone, his fate, is…the Manx Cat. The play is performed by four talented actors, Remco Melles, Siem van Leeuwen, Hans Thissen and Steven Stavast, who juggle many roles and make clever use of everyday items to bring the story to life. Items as varying as, puppets, helmets, ping pong
balls, recycle bins and even a roll of toilet paper. “Can you imagine falling totally in love with a blue mouse without a tail and with kangaroo-ears, in an hour? No, you can’t? Then you don’t know Kwatta’s Manxmouse yet.” – Theaterkrant.nl
Manxmouse: The Mouse Who Knew No Fear is recommended for children ages 4 – 8.
There will be free pre-show creative play activities beginning one hour before each performance.
