Short Stories, Tall Tales: Mouse and Sam

Storytelling for babies, toddlers and parents. Actress and mum Hannah Summers brings classic and modern stories to life through live performance and creative play.  Suitable for ages 0-4 years. Duration 45 mins.

Mouse and Sam: There once lived a mouse under the floorboards of a creaky old house. But on one usual day, an adventure ensues in an unusual way! Join our timid mouse in an interactive storytelling show. Your little ones will love to explore and discover the world through his eyes as he finds a way to play and be brave.

An original tale, written and told by Hannah Summers. Illustrations by Jo Hathaway.

Hannah is exceptionally pleased to be back at the Ropetackle and her storytelling sessions have been adjusted to reflect current guidance, ensuring that you and your little ones enjoy safe, interactive play together. 

Ropetackle has taken exceptional care providing a safe venue and is limiting the capacity of children and adults to each storytelling show.  This will allow comfortable space for your family. 

Adults are required to wear face coverings in the theatre unless medically exempt.

Hannah and the children will be mask free.
