Odd One Out

Odd One Out - Capital E's National Theatre for Children

Zip! The blue thingee gets put in the blue spot.

Ping! The green-majig goes to the green spot.

Bash! The yellow-whozit is placed in the yellow spot.

Three curious characters live a busy life in a world where everything has a purpose and place… until one day, an Odd character arrives and things start to change. Suddenly their world is full of things that don’t belong anywhere! What will the Odd One Out do next and will anything ever be the same again?

Odd One Out is a great theatre introduction for young children. Created for ages 2-8, it approaches a subject we all experience at one time or another – feeling left out or different. Through the vibrant and bubbly characters, the audience experiences a new world and discovers with the characters that being different isn’t bad. In fact, it can be exciting! With physical action and comedy, the three characters, at first cautious of the Odd One, learn that embracing new ways of doing things can be exciting and lead to unexpected creations.

This non-verbal live performance is delightfully entertaining and playful. The intriguing nature of the characters and the mischievous Odd One are a joy to watch and the unfolding story will have your tamariki laughing and engaging with the characters and their antics.
