A Buxton Opera House Production

Hare & Tortoise

by Brendan MurrayPavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

A musical play for 3–8 year olds and their families.

Hare is always in a rush. Tortoise likes to take things more gently. Hare wants to race, Tortoise would prefer to go on holiday…

Join us for this beautiful reworking of Aesop’s famous fable as we travel through the seasons with these two unlikely but loveable friends and help them prepare for their big race.     

This exciting play, especially designed for our younger audience, is a perfect introduction to theatre.

“The world was winter shivery and shaking... Tortoise sleeping: sound and silent... Hare was waiting, wishing, wondering. When will Tortoise wake?”

Brendan Murray, Hare and Tortoise
