Based on the best-selling books by Mo Willems, Leonardo is a terrible monster. He tries so hard to be scary, but he just… isn’t. Then Leonardo finds Sam, the most scaredy-cat kid in the world. Will Leonardo finally get to scare the tuna salad out of someone? Or will it be the start of an unlikely friendship? Using hundreds of illustrated paper puppets, book pages, two-dimensional props, furry monster puppets and songs, Manual Cinema brings Mo Willems’ big, bold, colourful book to playful and imaginative life.

CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS: diversity, individuality, friendship, cooperation, theatre, film and music.

SENSORY CONSIDERATIONS: low venue lighting, some loud sounds, flashing lights and furry monster puppets!
