I Want My Hat Back

Based on Jon Klassen's beloved book, I Want My Hat Back is a delightful, interactive, cumulative musical with a mischievous twist. Bear's hat is gone. He loves his hat. He wants it back! None of the animals in the forest have seen it... but wait! The joy of the tale lies in figuring out the explicit plot from the implicit details. Can the audience help Bear solve the mystery of his missing hat? The quirky humour, catchy songs, and dynamic visuals wink at the audience with a wry irreverence that will have everyone, young and old, thrilled to be in on the joke.

Be sure to catch this wonder of a show which played at the National Theatre (UK) to critical acclaim! Book early as tickets are bound to sell-out.
