Little Meerkat’s Big Panic children’s theatre show

March 9 @ 11:00 am - 4:20 pm


Join an adventure in the Kalahari desert combining award-winning multi-sensory theatre with an encounter with real, live meerkats and their friends! Collar & Cuffs return to Delapre Abbey following their sold out runs of The Christmas Clock and Crabby, with their unique musical show for 0-7s and children with special needs all about calm and anxiety, based on the book by renowned parenting expert Jane Evans. Following the show, The Exotic Animal Encounter will introduce you to their meerkats – Kala, Bam, Maddie and Bazza – and a few other animal friends for a fun, friendly, interactive and informative session.
It’s a big day in the Kalahari desert: it’s Little Meerkat’s first day on Lookout Duty. However, once she climbs the Lookout Tree she finds it all a bit overwhelming and falls asleep. When she wakes, all her meerkat friends and family are gone and a great big panic begins! With help from a Kind Elephant and a Wise Monkey can she learn to feel calmer and find those missing meerkats? This little tale helps everyone to see, hear, smell, taste and feel what’s going on in their brains and bodies when emotions become overwhelming.

50 minute performance including interactive sensory play, plus a 30 minute animal encounter. 5 general release performances, final performance on Sunday is exclusively for children or young people with complex needs.
