Dr Zeiffal, Dr Zeigal And The Hippo That Can Never Be Caught (Mouths of Lions)

By | Published on Monday 21 August 2017

We are all delegates at a conference, which is not your everyday start to a kids’ show! Anyway, Dr Zeigal’s running late, but Dr Zeiffal is here to talk us through all the things we’ll need to try and find one of the many hippos apparently running wild in the UK. And so we run through the tools of that ‘trade’, with the assistance of young volunteers to help with things like reading the map, operating the hippo-calling device and unfolding the invisible hippo-catching cape. Farce and slapstick ensue as the hippo makes its presence known to the audience. The kids are sharp enough to cotton on to a rather gaping plot hole but, that aside, this is a good dose of silly, interactive fun.

Assembly Roxy, until 28 Aug.
