"Our tale tells of a little girl and Wilma was her name, who loved to laugh and run and play, more wild and free than tame!"
Wild Wilma tells the story of a young girl who is sold to the circus because of her extraordinary nature.
However, Wilma struggles to fit in and meet the strict expectations of the circus mistress.
On a quest to find her identity, Wilma finds the courage and bravery to be wild and free through the friendship of others.
Wild Wilma is a wonderfully wild family show written by children's author, Rachel Lyon (I Wish I'd Been Born A Unicorn for CBeebies) told through physical storytelling, puppetry and an original soundtrack.
Be brave. Be different. Be wild!
Suitable for ages 4-8 years.
We also host a post show 'Meet & Greet' for the chance to meet Wild Wilma and Bi Bi the Bear!
So far, Wild Wilma has won the East 15 Graduate Companies Award, Tangled Feet Mentorship Programme and was a finalist in the 2018 LET Awards.
