Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch
Axis Theatre presents Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch, based on the beloved children’s book by Eileen Spinelli. Mr. Hatch leads a colorless, ordered life, until one Valentine’s Day, he receives a candy-filled heart with the note that says “somebody loves you”. This heart-warming puppet play from British Columbia examines the effect that kindness can have on a dreary existence. Join Mr. Hatch as he searches for his secret admirer and enjoys the biggest surprise of his life! For ages 3 & up.
Prior to the performance, cast members of Axis Theatre will host an introductory workshop into the world of shadow puppetry. Participants will learn how to design and build their very own shadow puppets and how to physically play with them on stage or on a shadow screen. This workshop is designed for young people who want to play, have fun, and learn new creative skills in a supportive environment.
