Mowzer, the Mousehole Cat is coming home for Christmas and will be performing for all to see in the village, alongside the famous lights, from Saturday, December 17, until January 7.
The Dream Team will be presenting a magical puppet and live action production of Antonia Barber’s classic children’s story, which has been adapted by Alan M Kent, in the newly refurbished Solomon Browne Memorial Hall in Mousehole, the village's former pilchard works.
Following a sold-out summer tour, this re-imagined festive production will be performed entirely in the round and features a live acoustic soundtrack composed and played by local guitarist Scott Fleming.
Families will have time to marvel at Mousehole’s spectacular Christmas lights display before taking their seats to hear how this West Cornwall village was saved from desperate famine by the brave actions of fisherman, Tom Bawcock, and his faithful cat, Mowzer.
Based on a well-known Cornish legend, Antonia Barber’s uniquely heart warming story of the friendship between a fearless fisherman and his devoted cat is sure to warm the cockles of your heart almost as much as a ‘efty portion of stargazy pie.
The Mousehole Cat runs for three weeks and lasts for approximately one hour, allowing families to soak up the atmosphere of Cornwall’s most famous Christmas light display and enjoy a live performance all in one evening.
