The Owl and the Pussycat - CANCELLED

Due to the current Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak RPAC will be temporarily closed as a precautionary measure to protect our audience and artists, and to help in efforts to reduce the spread of the virus.

As a result this event will not be going ahead.
The RPAC Box Office will be in contact in the next 10-15 business days to offer a refund, or you may wish to transfer your booking to another performance at RPAC later in the year or take a credit note.
There are a large number of events that have been impacted by this temporary closure, so we ask for your patience while we work through ticket transfers, credit notes and refunds. For more information visit the RPAC COVID-19 update page HERE >


Ahoy! Adventure calls and love conquers all in this nostalgic musical journey

In a pea-green boat, an owl and a pussycat sail across the sea for a year and a day on a musical adventure.

The Owl and the Pussycat is an enchanting and intimate theatrical experience for families, based on Edward Lear’s beloved childhood poem. Created by a national team of award-winning artists for children 4-10 years, be swept away in this all-new opera, featuring stunning vocals, interactive theatre, puppetry, a troupe of musical Puffins and an irresistible blend of romance and nonsense.

This interactive journey inspires, educates and enthrals by inviting children, alongside their families/carers, to help our loveable couple reach their destination. Aboard a giant magical pea-green boat moored at RPAC, meet our pair’s colourful and eccentric new friends, as they are brought to life on deck.

Come set sail with this charming show and landmark music work for children that explores the universal themes of love, adventure, harmony and acceptance. You might even meet a honey-hooked Sea Bear, an itty bitty Kitty and a punky Piggy-wig along the way.
