Half Moon presents a Justin Coe production for ages 4 – 9
A tall story about the wonders of being small.
Justin is the smallest boy in the whole town. So small that he can swim with goldfish. So small his sister takes him to school in her lunchbox. So small the class bully, Bother Boots Bradley, wants to catch him and keep him as his new pet.
Justin just wants to be like his giant Dad, but when he finds out his Dad is not the Big Wow, he sets off on a journey to find who – or what – the Big Wow really is! Can the Big Wow help Justin to be tall in time, before Bradley puts him in a cage ready for the school show and tell in assembly?
With the help of a pigeon, the mountain and the World Ant Weightlifting Champion, Justin soon realises that being big might not be all its bigged up to be.
Told with huge helpings of humour, poignant poetry and original music, this is a tall story about the wonders of being small.

Performances last 45 mins (no interval).
A range of images to use are available from the link below:
“Young people relate to tiny characters, feel superior to someone smaller than them, and are fascinated by the ins and outs of life in the little lane. Big Wow Small Wonder appeals through a combination of all three, as titchy Justin negotiates everyday life, comes under threat from big bullies at school, and searches for the Big Wow in a desperate attempt to grow…and (Justin Coe’s) trust in the audience’s patience for performance poetry pays off.”
(Children’s Theatre Reviews)
“Epic and intimate at the same time, brilliant.”
(Audience member at Half Moon)
“Justin’s performance was slick and professional, magical and inspirational. Poetry has never been more popular!”
“Poetry, storytelling, and the sheer charm emanating from the personal magic of Justin himself.” (Brighton Fringe Festival)
