The Lion Inside

Touring to outdoor spaces from July 2021
The Lion Inside is back! 

LAStheatre presents their production of Rachel Bright and Jim Field's award-winning children's book The Lion Inside - touring from July 2021.

Following a successful tour in 2020 - including Harrow Arts Centre, Slung Low, The Albany & The Place - we are delighted that The Lion Inside will be ROARING back onto the stage this summer touring to outdoor spaces on our self sufficient caravan theatre. 

A full list of tour dates can be found below.
The Lion Inside is a show for 4 to 7 year olds, and their families, about confidence, self-esteem, and a shy little mouse who sets out on a journey to find his roar and discovers that even the smallest creature can have the heart of a lion.

Mouse lives in a house under a rock. At the top of the rock lives a Lion with the loudest roar of all the pack. Fed up of being ignored by the other animals, Mouse wishes he could roar like Lion. He tries and tries to find his roar, but in the end decides the only thing to do is to overcome his fear and ask Lion for help. 
LAStheatre’s production creatively and playfully explores: facing fears; building confidence; feeling positive; dealing with change; celebrating our differences and similarities; and playfully helping children transition back into the world post-lockdown.

The Lion Inside is a LAStheatre production created with support from Arts Council England, 101 Outdoor Arts and Harrow Arts Centre.

Our 2021 Tour is supported by house. house is delivered by Farnham Maltings, with support from Arts Council England.
