The Pond

By Peter Wilson

The Pond is a magical journey through the eyes of the creatures and plants that live in and around the pond and whose daily lives depend on the importance of water for their survival. The play begins with rain, rain that makes the puddles, the rivers and the ponds. One by one, the creatures and plants that live in and around the pond are introduced. But something is wrong, the water in the pond is growing foul and dirty. Something has to be done.

The story is told using simple songs, music, movement and puppets. The two actors take the children in the audience on a wonderful journey to discover the colours, textures, sounds and creatures of the pond and help them to understand the importance of water. The delightful characters are created with shadow and hand puppets .

Full of music, sounds, songs and action, The Pond is a wonderful introduction to theatre for young children, performed in the intimacy of your own centre, classroom or school hall. The Pond is not only entertaining, it is also a great learning experience for young audiences.
