Presented by: Shenkman Arts Centre Presents

Saturday, November 25, 2017 at 4 pm

Created by Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia

A whimsical and heartwarming adaptation of two beloved children’s books that speak to the vast love between parent and child.

Little Nutbrown Hare loves Big Nutbrown Hare as far as he can reach and as high as he can hop. But Big Nutbrown Hare loves him as far as his long arms can reach and as high as his strong legs can hop. The award-winning book Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram is masterfully brought to the stage with design and direction by Jim Morrow, music by Steven Naylor and narration by Beau Bridges.

In I Love My Little Storybook, an eager bunny’s favourite tales come to life in fascinating detail in this endearing celebration of the joy of reading.

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia presents the classic bedtime stories Guess How Much I Love You and I Love My Little Storybook in a delightful stage adaptation full of beautiful sets and skilled puppetry.
