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. There is light and darkness. Humour and pathos. English and Danish. Attention Deficit. It’s an experience rated E for Everyone, which critics have said is “like something you would expect to see in a Wes Andersen film.”

Little Orange Man has had over 100 performances in 13 communities across Canada.

“UNBELIEVABLY FUNNY”—PLANK Magazine
“REMARKABLE FEATS OF PUPPETRY”—CBC
“She’s sort of girl director Terry Gilliam might have dreamed up."—Calgary Herald

“Little Orange Man is the very peak of creativity. The storytelling devices are darkly dazzling…with a tender and delicate finish. ★★★★★ ”—Vue Weekly Magazine

“HALF THE TIME I WAS BAWLING, THE OTHER HALF I WAS LAUGHING OUT LOUD. Hansen’s manipulation of food puppets is so lifelike that you find it hard to believe they aren’t alive.”—Craig Magazine

“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

70 minutes, no intermission.
