A delightful, ‘can-do’, fun-filled experience for the whole family to enjoy!
Olivia is awkward, shy and a little lonely, in fact…she freezes in any spotlight! She is new, she wants to make friends, and most of all she wants to be able to catch a ball!! Can our plucky heroine outwit WHACK the Ball monster who threatens to bounce her into the side lines? Watch and cheer on as Olivia turns her world into a game she can play!
Circus, Theatre & Puppetry meet in this high energy, playful and imaginative take on our love of sport and all things sporty. Our cast jump, roll, bounce and throw as they learn to ‘look before they leap’ while ‘having a ball’!! CATCH! is all about making friends and becoming a team. CATCH! is an action-packed, interactive adventure for little ones, their families & their friends…that uses balls and play to tell a story about making friends and overcoming your fears.
The work is of exceptional quality and it has an energy that I seldom encounter in other shows. Catch! playfully asks big questions and encourages children to be curious, creative and kind. Moreover, it invites and empowers other family members and teachers to creatively engage with children, thus promising enduring and sustained positive impacts long after the curtain comes down. This particular quality in a show is rare and precious to those of us who curate programs for young audiences. (Jenny Simpson CEO/Artistic Director – AWESOME Festival)
