How big is a million? Is there a man in the moon? What colour is music? Can I touch light?
A child’s curiosity is endless. And asking questions is often more important than finding the answer.
The Thought That Counts is a playful and enchanting celebration for 4–7 year olds of how we learn through play. Taking its inspiration from the notion that a genius is someone who, like children, keeps asking questions, the show creates a magical world using theatre, dance, animated shapes, puppetry and video.
