Mischief and Mystery in Moomin Valley

Mischief and Mystery in Moomin Valley was a play that promised gentle, heart-warming entertainment, and it certainly delivered. All ages in the audience were charmed by the cleverly crafted pop-up scenes and unfolding backgrounds from suitcases and a large book, which worked so well with the simple puppets.

But the big highlight was the audience participation, encouraging children to engage their imagination and become part of the show. They threw imaginary snowballs, played under the sea and toasted marshmallows around an invisible campfire – perfect for keeping my 3, 5, and 7 year olds interested and engaged. The two people guiding the puppets (and the children!) did a fantastic job of switching the children’s attention back to the next instalment of the puppet story, keeping them captivated in Moomin’s journey through the seasons and his search for his friend Snufkin.

We look forward to seeing what MVP Village theatre brings next!
