The Owl and the Pussycat comes to the Theatre Royal next month.


Full House Theatre returns to Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds next month with The Owl and the Pussycat, a show all about where, what and who our family really are.

Join Owly-cat and fellow family members, Jumblie and Quangle Wangle Quee in a story inspired by the nonsense world of Edward Lear on Friday and Saturday, June 15 and 16.

The  trio travel to the dolomphious land where the bong tree grows, learning all about the creatures who live there and their curious habits.

Will this mellobious family return together, will they always be a three?

A totally original take on the well-known poem it is also influenced by Edward Lear’s little known, unfinished poem about the Owl and Pussycat’s children. With an uplifting original score and elements of clowning in a nonsense world of silliness, this is theatre suitable for all ages with a recommended age of thee plus.

The Owl and the Pussycat at Theatre Royal is part of the children’s arts programme, Once Upon A Festival.

As well as the performances of the show there is also a family treasure trail where children are invited to hunt treasures around the town.

When the children find a treasure, they will draw a picture of it on their map and write down the last word of the limerick that is hidden along with it. Completed maps can then be handed in when visiting for a performance of the show, in exchange for an exciting free gift.The treasure trail will run from Wednesday, May 16, to Saturday, June 16.
