After its sell-out success over a decade ago, Oily Cart is delighted to announce the return of its not too cool for pre-school show – HIPPITY HOP. Running from 11 to 31 December at artsdepot, North Finchley followed by a national UK tour from January 11, this hip ‘n’ happening, multi-sensory musical is back to meet and immerse a new generation of hip young things into the magical world of theatre.
Hippity Hop tells the story of The Runaway Pram, as the young audience help a lost baby to find her Mum. The show is suitable for children aged 2 – 5; and a relaxed/enhanced version is also available at certain venues for youngsters up to the age of 8.
Hippity Hop is directed by children’s theatre specialist Patrick Lynch who has been directing theatre for young people since 2003 – but is perhaps best known to audiences big and small for his presenting work on CBeebies which he has done since 2006. The production also features many Oily Cart stalwarts and familiar faces – from performer Katherine Vernez Gray (In A Pickle, Hush-A-Bye, Kubla Khan) to musician Kadialy Kouyate (Kora player from Hush-A-Bye and the recent Kubla Khan tour) – as well as newcomer Oli Polidore Perrins.
