The Magic Porridge Pot

the magic porridge potOnce upon a time a helpful little girl lived on the edge of the village. She dreamed of how she could help her poor, hungry fellow villagers.

One day, she met an old woman who presented her with a little pot. With the words, ‘Cook, little pot, cook!’ the pot would fill with sweet and nourishing porridge.

The little girl was overjoyed, thinking that all their troubles were over… But this is just the beginning of the story!

An exciting and energetic show, with puppetry, a strong interactive element and a plot full of surprises.
