In a dry dusty place where the sand sparkled gold, stood a mighty flat rock, all craggy and old. And under that rock in a tinyful house, lived the littlest, quietest, meekest brown mouse.

Fed up of being ignored by the other animals, Mouse wishes he could roar like Lion. But, as he discovers, even the biggest, bossiest people are scared sometimes … and even the smallest creatures can have the heart of a lion!

Based on the award-winning book by Rachel Bright and Jim Field, LAStheatre’s production for 4 to 7-year olds and their families is about confidence, self-esteem, and a shy little mouse who sets out on a journey to find his roar.

What if this mouse with the weeniest squeak, was a little more GRRRRR and a little less meek?

The Lion Inside creatively and playfully explores facing fears, feeling positive and dealing with change.

LAStheatre creates layered, urgent, heart-driven stories that engage people of all ages. These tales tackle important and complex ideas in surprising, joyous and participatory ways.

Towards the end of the show there will be a hat parade. All bookers will recieve templates that you can print out, colour in and decorate at home, or you can bring your best or favourite hats to the performance!

This event is Pay-What-You-Decide (PWYD) which means you book as normal but you don’t pay a penny until after you’ve seen the show, based on how much you enjoyed the experience.  Please note at the moment we are only taking card payments.
