About the Company
Resources

A mischievous duo starts to doodle…

and ends up creating a whole imaginative world!

 

They invite us along on their sea adventure with a tiny little turtle. What will happen as we follow their vivid drawings into this beautiful watery world, and will they return the turtle to the sea safely? 

 

This touching and playful non-verbal show uses live musicians who perform the accompanying score and sound effects, stunning interactive animation projections and live whiteboard drawings, and an abundance of theatrical imagination.

Doodle POP has performed (under the previous name Woogie Boogie) at festivals all over the world and was awarded the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, 2018 Asian Arts Award 'BEST COMEDY'. The 2020-2021 season will be its first US national tour.

"...inventive and thrilling and completely fantastical. Natural, mythical and comical creatures morph into each other with as little as a flick of a hand or a wave of a pen… as awe-inspiring for the adults as it is for children.” Exeunt Magazine

Best for: Grades PreK -2nd (Ages 4-7 years)

Audience Size: Small & Medium Venues
(Up to 600 seats ideal but can be flexible depending on venue)

Critical Acclaim

“A black and white dream, it must be said, but nevertheless, inventive and thrilling and completely fantastical. Natural, mythical and comical creatures morph into each other with as little as a flick of a hand or a wave of a pen… as awe-inspiring for the adults as it is for children.”

—Exeunt Magazine

“Very clever show and innovative use of animation and real time drawing. A lovely and very touching story about fear, love and first adventures.“

—Primary Times

“This is a clever, thoughtful and well-structured show for young audiences, performed with gusto and accompanied by lovely keyboard jingles.”

—Three Weeks Edinburgh

“This piece is an excellent example of children’s theatre, blended with a well-performed musical accompaniment, keeping the young ones' interest but still having enough substance for adults to enjoy. Cleverly using their chosen medium to create scenes and story, this is a delight for all ages.”

—Fringe Guru

“The show is well designed and acted…This is an imaginative and delightful original show that will appeal to families. It is entertaining, fun and inventive. “
