Following its triumphant adaptation of The Jungle Book, Metta Theatre returns to Exeter Northcott Theatre with its new show, Blown Away.
Penguin Blue and friends go on an acrobatic Antarctic adventure full of good ideas, homesickness and the perils of kites. Packed full of spectacular circus, magical puppetry and catchy songs, Metta Theatre’s, joyous new stage adaptation of Rob Biddulph’s award-winning children’s book is fun for all the family.
London based Metta Theatre recently became an associate company of the Exeter Northcott Theatre. Along with Le Navet Bete and Paddleboat Theatre, Metta Theatre will benefit from artistic mentorship, production management support, tour booking, education support, marketing and sales planning and support with bid writing.
Poppy Burton-Morgan of Metta Theatre said: We’re absolutely thrilled with this new partnership with Exeter Northcott Theatre; a perfect venue, brilliant and supportive staff and an intelligent and engaged local audience – we feel like we’ve won the theatrical jackpot! With no fewer than four Metta productions planned to premiere at the theatre over the next two years you’ll be seeing a lot more of us on Exeter Northcott’s wonderful stage”
