Be happy, Harry Hippo!
At the Electric Theatre on 20th February 2019 @ 11am & 2.30pm..
Hodgepodge Theatre presents Be happy, Harry Hippo!
Harry Hippo has lost his smile and can’t seem to get it back. No matter what he tries or where he looks, Harry can’t find his smile anywhere. What will he do? Encouraged by resident motor mouth Olly the Oxpecker, Harry and Olly set off on a journey across Uganda to see new sights, hear new sounds and learn new things. Along the way, Harry will get the chance discover exactly what it is that makes him truly happy and where to find his smile when he gets sad.
A play full of puppetry madness and audience interaction, ‘Be happy, Harry Hippo!’ has been designed to help families broach the subject of childhood depression, recognise the signs and assist where possible.
The performance runs for 55 minutes and offers a stay and play session post show, where the audience can meet the puppets, ask questions and have their photos taken.
