Circo Rum Ba Ba – The Whale

The Whale

Calling all bold explorers! Squeeze into the belly of an enormous inflatable Sperm Whale where you’ll find yourself in the depths of the bubbling, kelp-swirling ocean. They encounter an acrobatic diver who leads them swimmingly through the age-old journey of the life of an ancient Leatherback Turtle.

Exquisite puppets, comedy and music abound - explore the tale of sea creatures and their battle to survive in an ocean full of rubbish. The audience is left feeling empowered that everyone can make a difference.
