Little Angel Theatre’s MOON RIVER

The excellent Little Angel Theatre are offering another show for free online until 31st December,

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.

Although this show is free to watch, please consider making a donation to the Little Angel Theatre which does vital work in helping younger children to access and experience the joy of theatre.


This is an adaptation of one book in Tim Hopgood’s classic songbook series. You can also watch a show featuring another song/book in this series, WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD, by clicking here
