Overview. Skip back to tab navigation


In a dry dusty place where the sand sparkled gold, stood a mighty flat rock, all craggy and old. And under that rock in a tinyful house, lived the littlest, quietest, meekest brown mouse.

Fed up of being ignored by the other animals, Mouse wishes he could roar like Lion. But, as he discovers, even the biggest, bossiest people are scared sometimes … and even the smallest creatures can have the heart of a lion!

Based on the award-winning book by Rachel Bright and Jim Field, LAStheatre’s present a show for everyone 3+. The Lion Inside creatively and playfully explores facing fears, feeling positive and dealing with change. It's about confidence, self-esteem, and a shy little mouse who sets out on a journey to find his roar.

What if this mouse with the weeniest squeak, was a little more GRRRRR and a little less meek?

LAStheatre creates layered, urgent, heart-driven stories that engage people of all ages. These tales tackle important and complex ideas in surprising, joyous and participatory ways.

Hat Parade

Towards the end of The Lion Inside there will be a very special hat parade. Mouse and Lion would love for you to bring along your favourite hats, or make a hat with all the colours and craft materials you have at home. Download your templates to print out, colour in and decorate below.
