‘Moominland Midwinter’ at Waterside Arts Centre, Manchester


Zoe Hunter will be appearing in ‘Moominland Midwinter’ at the Waterside Arts Centre, Manchester from 8th December-2nd January.

zoe hunterThe Moomins come to life on stage this Christmas in a show starring Moomintroll, Little My, Too-Ticky, The Hemulen, Snork Maiden and Moominmamma!

Join us in Moominland where actors and beautiful hand-creafted, full-sized puppets perform a brand new adaptation of one of Tove Jansson’s best-loved original stories, accompanied by a specially-written soundtrack.

…Waking early from his winter hibernation, Moomintroll sets off to explore a snowy Moominland, but the places which he knows so well in summer have all changed. He finds Too-Ticky and her invisible shrews living in his summer bathing house and Little My wearing Moominmamma’s tray and tea-cosy! Following a run-in with the Lady of the Cold and a certain forgetful Squirrel, Moomintroll is forced to make some very grown-up decisions…

Heart-warming, humorous and spell-binding, this is a wonderful Christmas show for all the family to enjoy together.

Moomin facts! Tove Jansson’s Moomin stories are loved all over the world, crossing barriers of language, age and culture. The books have been translated into 43 different languages and have also been animated and turned into a feature film.
