"Can you imagine falling totally in love with a blue mouse without a tail? You will want to take him home with you." THEATERKRANT.NL
Manxmouse is truly one-of-a-kind. Instead of grey fur, his is bright blue. Instead of tiny mouse ears, his are large rabbit-like ears. On top of it all, Manxmouse is without a tail. Some may say he's the strangest mouse they've ever seen, but Manxmouse doesn't mind being different.
Join Manxmouse as he sets out on an exciting adventure, braving terrified elephants tigers, fearsome foxes, soaring hawks and dastardly pet-shop owners. Eventually, Manxmouse meets someone who has been waiting for him all along… the Manx Cat.
Based on the beloved children's novel by Paul Gallico, Maxmouse expresses the ultimate use of the imagination through storytelling. Netherlands's Theatergroep Kwatta creates an adventurous form of toy theater utilizing everyday objects to captivate the minds and hearts of children and their families.
