Families are in for a treat as we present award-winning Little Angel Theatre’s stunning puppetry adaptation of Chris Haughton‘s wonderful picture book, Don’t Worry, Little Crab. Little Crab and Very Big Crab live in a rockpool. Today, they’re going for a dip in the sea. ‘This is going to be so great!’ says Little Crab. But then Little Crab catches a first glimpse of the water… Oh. The waves! They’re ENORMOUS. ‘JEEPERS!’ Will Little Crab be brave enough to go in?

During lockdown, the Little Angel Theatre’s talented team communicated remotely from their homes and studios to design, make, perform and film the show.

Please download the accompanying craft activity above so you can enjoy creating Little Crab and Very Big Crab puppets using simple materials you’ll find at home.

Aimed at children aged 2–5.

Approximate running time 8 minutes
