Get Lost and Found presents MISCHIEF AND MYSTERY IN MOOMINVALLEY
Discover the world of the Moomins where anything is possible. Be sure to pack your imagination and join us on an unforgettable journey to Moominvalley where everyone is welcome, nature thrives, and adventures are plentiful.
Based on the much-loved novels by Tove Jansson, this heart-warming show tells the story of a year in Moominvalley. Moomintroll wakes up in the middle of winter with a ‘something- wrong-feeling’. There’s no sign of his good friend Snufkin, or the note Snufkin left him. As winter turns to spring and Snufkin returns, the days lengthen into a lazy summer and ‘the sea brings them all the adventures they could wish for’.
British theatre group Get Lost and Found was commissioned by the Tove Jansson literary estate and Moomin Characters to create a new theatrical experience for children aged 3 – 7years. The result is a delightful show full of magical puppetry, an ingenious pop-up book set, original music, and interactive storytelling. Mischief and Mystery in Moominvalley was created in consultation with Sophia Jansson, Tove’s niece, and echoes the books’ themes: the love of nature, the value of friendship, the pain of separation and the acceptance of difference.
