Little Orange Man by Ingrid Hansen & SNAFU
Eleven-year-old Kitt is troubled by a recurring dream. With no adults left in her world she can trust, she places an ad on Craigslist inviting a group of strangers into her subconscious dreamscape to help fight her darkest battle. One part Inception, one part Pixar’s movie Up,and featuring SNAFU’s signature puppetry, Little Orange Man has been called “Magical and touching…A MUST-SEE” by the Ottawa Citizen.
Kitt’s greatest delight comes from reenacting her grandfather’s grisly danish fairytales to young neighborhood kindergartners, which soon gets her into trouble with the adults of the world. But in Kitt’s world, stories produce reality. Stories come from everywhere: suitcases, shadow puppetry, songs, and bits of leftover food she saved from lunch.
Little Orange Man has delighted over 100 audiences in 13 communities across Canada.

“Visually stunning, superbly performed and incredibly inventive, Little Orange Man offers both heart and thought. An enchanting, fantastical theatre dream.” - CVV Magazine
“Her only friends are kindergarten kids; she respects them for their powerful attachment to imagining. She’s made the best of being an outsider. The entrancing thing about her is her high-speed delivery and fierce creative energy; she’s a kid who rises to the challenge of performing, and including her audience, in a funny and touchingly spontaneous way. ★★★★1/2 ” — Edmonton Journal
