The Pixie and the Pudding
A Little Angel Theatre production
Aimed at ages 4 – 11
Duration: approx 1 hour
It’s Christmas Eve on the farm, and the chickens, pigs and cows are fast asleep. Inside the farmhouse, the fire is roaring and a delicious, steaming pudding is left out on the windowsill…
When Charlie and her dad move to the farm from the city, everything seems to go wrong. Dolly the cow’s in a grump, there’s not an egg to be found, and even the cockerel has stopped crowing! If only they’d paid attention to the mysterious note left on their windowsill about a curious pixie and the pudding she likes to eat on Christmas Eve…
This enchanting musical brings a tale from Scandinavian folklore to life with puppetry, original music and a sprinkling of pixie magic.
The Pixie and the Pudding is aimed at ages 4-11. All ages can enjoy the funny farm animals and the Pixie’s magical visits to the house, and for older children there are ideas about tradition, city life versus country life, and the characters’ relationships. Very young children may get restless as the show runs for almost an hour and has lots of dialogue and not many ‘joining in’ parts.
