I Want My Hat Back Trilogy

Presented by Little Angel Theatre with Ian Nicholson and Sam Wilde Aimed

Hosted by RivelinCo

Recommended for ages 3-6

A bear has lost his hat. What if he never sees it again? WAIT! He has seen his hat.

A fish has stolen a hat. And he’ll probably get away with it. Probably.

Two turtles have found a hat. The hat looks good on both of them. But there are two turtles. And there is only one hat.

RivelinCo are delighted to host this beloved story for its’ Sheffield debut! As well as these very special public shows, we will also be touring the show to 4 local primary schools in the S6 area.

Following their hit digital series on Little Angel Theatre’s YouTube channel, and a sold out run at their venue, lockdown sensations Ian Nicholson and Sam Wilde are back, showcasing their trademark cardboard design across the UK on the first ever tour of I Want My Hat Back Trilogy! Jon Klassen’s beloved books, I Want My Hat Back, This is Not My Hat and We Found A Hat, have found a new life of their own LIVE on stage. All your favourites including Bear, Little Fish and the Turtles will be making an appearance in this one-of-a-kind trilogy.
