A Frog Called Woânda

A play with shadows, puppets and live music for children aged 5-10 years, families and friends

Woânda is a frog who lives in the bathroom pipes. One day he suddenly pops up and meets the Laura, the little girl who lives in the house. Laura has dropped her mother's ring down the plughole and so Woânda helps her to look for it. Their search takes them on a whirlwind of twists and turns that combine dreams with reality and laughter with tears.

Told through live action, puppetry, music and shadows, this is a funny and touching story of love, loss and friendship.

Shows are performed in English or simple French. Please check with the venue which version is being performed.


Performance lasts approx one hour, no interval
