The Snail and the Whale

Ages 3-7

November 8-21 • Digital Performances

A Manitoba Theatre for Young People (MTYP) and Tall Stories of London Production based on the award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

Longing to see the world, a tiny sea snail hitches a lift on the tail of a great big, grey-blue humpback whale. When the whale gets beached, how will the snail save him? Join an adventurous young girl and her seafaring father as they reimagine the Julia Donaldson story, brought vividly to live with music, storytelling and loads of laughs.
