Long ago when all was night
Moon shone with colours shimmering bright
But then his jealous brother Sun,
Stole them all,
Yes every one!!!
Help Moon find his colours, then create your own kaleidoscopic world.
With beautifully simple props, all encompassing audience engagement throughout, music, song, and that wonderful physical storytelling for which they are well known, Toto Tales have something for the most nervous to the most experienced theatre goer.
Toto Tales presents a fantastically visual, interactive, thought provoking show. ‘The Legend of Magnificent Moon’ has been devised for children aged 3 plus and their grown-ups and is based on a traditional East African legend, which goes towards explaining the beautiful world we live in and where themes exploring the fragility of friendship and the danger of sibling rivalry are examined through the changing relationship of Sun and his brother Moon. Storytelling, humour and music all combine to create this electrifying show.
Using a simple and uncluttered set, the two storytellers weave a tale that moves from the caves to the sea and the forest. In particular, the sea was amazingly evocatively created with tiny fishes and a ‘scary’ octopus that nearly stole the show from the magnificent Moon.
The young children watching were captivated, and are kept involved and engaged in the story throughout. This is a show that has been well judged for the audience, short enough to limit the fidgets of the youngest, moving along at a pace that means they can follow the story while still holding their attention.

There is a charming simplicity to this show which you can’t help but warm to… The most basic of props turned into atmospheric works of art. The List 2009 ****
