    Ruff! Ruff! Let's get the animals home!

    Spot the dog pays a visit to his father's farm, along with friend Helen the blue hippo, only to discover all the animals are gone! Different noises then start up: cluck cluck, moo moo, oink oink. Which animals make these sounds? ... And where are they? Bring toddlers and children along to find out, and enjoy the diverting ways that Spot and Helen employ to bring the animals back to the farm.

    Spot the Dog picture books by renowned British children's author and illustrator Eric Hill have gained worldwide popularity. In this endearing family musical adapted from the series by Theater Terra, life-sized puppets shuttle between colourful sets bringing the lovable characters to life on stage. Accompanied by catchy music and Dutch clog dancing, the show provides children with a highly appealing introduction to the performing arts.
