★★★★★ Winner Primary Times Children’s Choice best show award
This award-winning original play for young children uses a rich mix of storytelling, physical theatre, clowning, puppetry and music and song to tell the tale of a puppy’s search for friendship in the wilderness of the Alps.
Snowbound in Grandma’s little house on top of the mountain, fun-loving Oskar goes out in the snow to find a friendly animal to play with. But the puppy is chased by a hungry fox and has a lucky escape when he falls down a deep hole and lands on top of a young hibernating marmot. Marmot forgives Oskar, and using her amazing whistling and digging skills, alerts Grandma to where they are and digs a tunnel to escape the fox. Oskar has so much fun with his new-found friend that he wants to play more but must wait until spring for Marmot to finish her long winter’s sleep.
