In a pea green boat, an owl and a pussycat sail across the sea for a year and a day to fair Bong-tree Bay. Adventure calls, new encounters await and love conquers all in a nostalgic musical journey and irresistible blend of romance and nonsense.

The Owl and the Pussycat is an enchanting and intimate theatrical experience for families, based on Edward Lear’s beloved childhood poem. Created by a national team of award-winning artists for children 4-10 years, be swept away in this all-new opera, featuring stunning vocals, interactive theatre, puppetry and a troupe of musical Puffins.

This interactive journey inspires, educates and enthrals by inviting children, alongside their families, carers and teachers, to participate in musical and multi-sensory ways to help our lovable couple reach their destination. Aboard a giant magical pea green boat, meet our pair’s colourful and eccentric new friends, as they are brought to life on deck.

Ahoy! Come set sail with this charming show and landmark music work for children that explores the universal themes of love, adventure, harmony and acceptance. You might even meet a honey-hooked Sea Bear, an itty bitty Kitty and a punky Piggy Wig.


This concert will be performed on the main floor (not on the stage) so you can get up close to the Owl, the Pussycat and the Pea Green Boat.  Feel bring to bring a cushion, seating will be available around the edges.
