In regional folklore, the Mousedeer is celebrated as a proud and cunning animal who is always ready to help his fellow animals in the forest. I Theatre brings children’s theatre with a strong regional flavour to life with Hey Little Mousedeer! from 18 July to 6 August 2013.
I Theatre’s Hey Little Mousedeer! weaves together and revitalises colourful and charming regional tales from Malaysia and Indonesia into an original children’s drama-musical.
Adventures in the Forest
Follow Sang Kancil, the Mousedeer, and his friends “Harimau the tiger, Monyet the friendly monkey, and Cicak the lizard, as they embark on adventures in the forest. As Kancil sets out to show how clever, brave and quick-witted he is, he inevitably entangles his friends in crazy schemes that bring no end of trouble. What valuable lessons will Kancil learn?
Developed with themes of saving the environment, bravery and facing the consequences of your actions, Hey Little Mousedeer! has something for everyone, whether children or grown-ups.
