Moominsummer MadnessThe excellent Polka Theatre presents the London premiere of an adaptation of one of Tove Jannson's famous Moomin stories, Moominsummer Madness. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of this famous author, this musical co-production with Royal and Derngate has beautiful puppets by Little Angel Theatre and follows the cute Moomin family on a humorous adventure where they encounter a strange floating theatre. The 100th anniversary celebrations continue with 'Moomin Summer Madness - A Birthday Party', a family day out on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th August in Covent Garden Market with readings, music and guest appearances from the Moomin puppets from this production plus fun activities for children on both days.
