About Handa’s Surprise at Polka Theatre

Travel to Kenya and follow in Handa’s footsteps as she journeys to see her best friend Akeyo, in the next village. Handa is taking seven delicious fruits as a surprise – but seven different animals have seven very different ideas… could you resist the sweet-smelling guava? How about a ripe red mango or a tangy purple passion fruit?

A blend of physical performance, puppetry, live music and song combine to create an intimate, magical production with audience participation. Come and share in the magical tangerine surprise!

Handa’s Surprise is aimed at ages  2 – 5. The small audience sit on cushions and mats around the stage for an intimate experience, and there is a chance to join in the dancing at the end.

Pre-or-post show workshops available.

“[The children] left the theatre buzzing and singing the songs as we walked down the street”

“[The children] were engaged, involved and well entertained”
