Did you ever dream of doing something impossible? Join Little Wing Puppets’ magical journey at Laycock Street Community Theatre this September as they tell the story of a bold little fish, who had a big dream, too.

The Fish That Wanted to Fly is about friendship, resistance, sustainability and having the courage to pursue something – even if it seems an impossible task.

The story follows a little fish whose mangrove swamp is drying up. The other fish in the school have left, and this little fish wants to learn how to fly so she can be with them again. The fish’s friend, Karramoko the hermit crab, is pessimistic and tells her the dream will never happen. A kingfisher, however, helps her and encourages her to keep trying. And, finally, a cormorant takes her into the sky to help her fly!

Little Wing Puppets are masters in creating original heart-warming puppet shows. They were behind A Little Bit of Blue, which sold out at Laycock Street Community Theatre in June, and we do not doubt that The Fish that Wanted to Fly will sell out very quickly too. Particularly given that this performance is taking place in Laycock Street Community Theatre’s Don Craig Studio – an intimate area that limits audiences to just 100 people. Don’t delay getting tickets.
