Kids are immediately drawn into this interactive theatre piece which alternately has guests sitting on the floor mats and moving about the theatre space as two very different animals become dear friends.
First our ladybug, Dot, meets Ziggy the skunk and invites the audience to join in the action as they compare differences. After examining circles and stripes on and around them, Ziggy encourages Dot to run, jump, wiggle, roll and leap to the warm, dark and dry den he calls home. Playing tug-of-war with a flower, the two explore the idea of sharing. They play a game of putting things in and out, then encourage the audience to participate by placing scarves in a box.
Next it’s all about your toddler’s favorite game, the Hokey Pokey. The audience is invited to clap as the two friends climb over many obstacles on their way to the cool, light and wet home of Dot. The friends investigate and demonstrate the concept of up and down, which naturally transitions to artists and audience members acting out the Itsy Bitsy Spider hand rhyme. The sun emerges, Spider notices the two friends have learned to share and the audience exits under a cloud of blissful bubbles.
