"The children at Tregadillett School had such a wonderful time watching the show and I now have a six year old that's insisting on coming down to Mousehole to see it again! Which I'm inclined to say yes to so that the whole family can watch it with her (for the third year in a row). It really is a brilliant show and a firm favourite of ours!"

THE MOUSEHOLE CAT
2018 Schools Tour
In 2018 we toured our adaptation of The Mousehole Cat to thirty-two Cornish primary schools from Landewednack on the Lizard to Otterham near Camelford.
We plan to be working in schools again in 2020! Join our mailing list to stay 'in the loop'!

Following requests from schools across Cornwall Cousin Jack's presented
"An excellent workshop which was thoroughly enjoyed by the children. Very well organised, age appropriate and accessible to everyone. Thank you so much."
Teacher from Kea Community Primary School
A fun and physical puppet theatre workshop for children aged 5 to 11 led by cast members from the sell out Cornish production of The Mousehole Cat.
Bec Applebee (Kneehigh, WildWorks), our Mowzer puppeteer, and Bryher Flanders (National Youth Theatre, Story Republic), Mousehole's very own fisherwoman and narrator, will lead primary school children through a journey of Cornish traditions, Celtic song and imaginative puppetry.
During this two and a half hour workshop children got the chance to create their own puppet and perform alongside the theatre company's actors and Mowzer puppet in their own unique scene based around the story of Tom Bawcock and the classic Cornish children's book, The Mousehole Cat.
"A fantastic afternoon of art, imagination and storytelling. All activities were well organised, thought through and loved by all the children."
Teacher from Sithney Community Primary School
