 ‘NO MATTER YOUR SIZE,

WE ALL HAVE A MOUSE

AND A LION INSIDE

 

Based on the book by Rachel Bright and Jim Field
Adapted & Directed by Sarah Punshon
Music & Lyrics by Eamonn O'Dwyer

 

A heart-warming tale about confidence, self-esteem, and a shy little
mouse who sets out on a journey to find his roar.

In a dry dusty place where the sand sparkled gold, stood a mighty flat
rock, all craggy and old. And under that rock in a tinyful house, lived the
littlest, quietest, meekest brown mouse.

Fed up of being ignored and forgotten by the other animals, Mouse wishes he could roar like Lion. But, as he discovers, even the biggest, bossiest people are scared sometimes ... and even the smallest creatures can have the heart of a lion!
