Milo’s Hat Trick 2019-04-16T11:56:42+01:00

Project Description

Milo’s Hat Trick

Milo the Magnificent isn’t magnificent at all. His card trick is hopeless. His rope trick is useless and his hat trick is a total mess!

Milo has one last chance – to pull a rabbit out of his hat at the next performance – or else!

With carrot, string and stick, Milo heads for the woods in search of a rabbit.

Instead he finds a bear, a very talented bear, whose sensational hat trick just might save Milo’s magic act.

Young audiences can expect magic, music and mischief in this delightful adventure from the multi-award winning Cahoots NI, based on the book by Jon Agee, adapted for the stage by Paul Bosco Mc Eneaney.

"The actors are wonderful. The music, lyrics, sound effects: all stellar. It’s impressive to me how so much off-the-wall action is conveyed clearly (and beautifully) with just a few props, great physical acting and very clever direction. Bravo! "
Jon Agee, Author
"Simply magical, we and the rest of the audience were spellbound. Do not miss this show"
"We are still talking about the magic and the theatrics. But the bear is what the kids loved the most. Really worth catching this on tour "
Audience Member
"...there’s a precision that must take months of effort and years of experience over the development of multiple shows to be able to combine technical wizardry with subtle human performances so seamlessly.""
