The song Moon River received an Academy Award for Best Original Song for its performance by Audrey Hepburn in the film BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S in 1961.

Here, in Tim Hopgood’s illustrated edition, a little girl goes on a magical journey along the Moon River, which flows from her bedroom out into the big wide world.

Hopgood’s illustrations will be brought to life with design by Alison Alexander, and new recordings of the songs by Barb Jungr and Jenny Carr. The team will be working together to create the shows remotely, following social distancing guidelines.

The show lasts about four minutes and is suitable for younger children.

The Little Angel Theatre responded magnificently to the lack of theatre available online for younger children by creating a stage version of Jon Klassen’s story book I WANT MY HAT BACK.

After the huge success of its showing online, with almost 160,000 views at the time of writing, Little Angel Theatre has again partnered with theatre director Ian Nicholson to stream an adaptation of the sequel to  I WANT MY HAT BACK which is called THIS IS NOT MY HAT. The show is free to access and designed for children aged from 3 to 6.

The show is available until September 1st and lasts just under ten minutes.
