“Timbuktu? Peru? Honolulu? Corfu? Someone rescue me from this hullabaloo!”

Blue is fed up with the cold, the ice and the snow and dreams only of sun, sea and surf. Anywhere that is not here and now away, and certainly away from his annoying baby brother who likes messing his things and cries quite a lot. But be careful what you wish for Blue, as being far away from home might not be what you expect.

The play followed Blue’s adventures swimming in an underwater paradise, riding the crashing waves and playing on golden sandy beaches. But, he soon realises that his sunshine adventures aren’t all that he hoped for, and that there might be something missing after all back home in all that snow and ice.

The play included a series of magical theatrical transformations and was framed within a soundtrack of electronic music.

Igloo Hullabaloo was an enchanting adventure about belonging and sibling rivalry presented in fully-integrated British Sign Language and English and was the 4th of 6 plays developed in this format by the company and which toured nationally.
