Adaptations

The Magic Hat Ali Gordon , Scott Gillespie , Sarah Lockwood , Carolyn Ramsey , 2010 single work drama children's

'In this charming adaptation of Mem Fox’s best–selling picture book, follow the surprising journey of a magic hat as it flies through your imagination changing dullardry into delight. See Mem Fox’s lyrical story told and retold through shadow puppetry, song, rhythm and movement by three blundering clowns.

'You have to believe it to see it as the stage action transforms into a cacophony of unruly animals, tamed only by your imagination.'
