Every year in Whistleberry Forest, the creatures of the forest look forward to the end of the frosty Winter, and to the beginning of Spring. This year was a little different however, as Springtime had arrived much earlier than usual. All the hibernating animals, except for Huggy the hedgehog, were still curled up fast asleep. Huggy must go on an adventurous musical quest in search of evidence of Spring if he is to convince his friends that it is time to wake up!

Produced by Ceol Connected, this wonderfully interactive performance is led by Thomas Johnston (whistles, song, and uilleann pipes) and Púca Puppets’ Niamh Lawlor. Directed by Emelie Fitzgibbon. Set design by Eve Fisher.

Suitable for children ages 3-5 and their adults. 45 minutes approx.
