August the tiger was sad.  He had lost his smile.....

I’m thrilled to be able to announce that MishMash are currently working on a new show in collaboration with Inspire: Culture, Learning and Libraries.

Smile is an enchanting musical retelling of the story of Augustus and the search for his smile for children aged 3 – 5 years and their families.  Told through magical, theatrical chamber music and performed by exceptional musicians, smile takes the audience on a delightful musical adventure.

This new show is a further collaboration with director Martin Berry and cellist Sophie Rivlin and is based on the book Augustus and His smile, written and illustrated by Catherine Rayner and published by little Tiger Press.   Funded by Arts Council England Smile is developed in association with Nottingham Library Service with support from Nottingham Music Service, Nottinghamshire Music Hub and Nottingham Lakeside Arts.

The production will tour Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Libraries in October 2017 and is available for further national touring in 2018.
