“Can I go to the Moon?” asked Baby Bear.
“No you can’t,” said Mrs Bear. “It’s bathtime. Anyway, you’d have to find a rocket first.”
Undeterred, Baby Bear finds a rocket, packs a picnic and visits the moon, accompanied by a friendly owl he meets along the way.
Using puppetry, movement, object animation, a bit of juggling and a lot of imagination, Whatever Next! explored the joy of imaginative play and the wonders of space.
Directed by Juliet Forster, Associate Director, York Theatre Royal. Whatever Next! was remounted at Sheffield Crucible Studio Theatre from 15 December – 8 January 2011.
