A story of love, loss and new beginnings.
From the creators of international smash hits, The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer and It’s Dark Outside comes a sensitive new show for all ages about loss, friendship and new beginnings.
Bart is a boisterous puppy waiting to be chosen from the animal shelter. Mabel is a lonely widow, trying to fill the hole in her heart. The day they find each other is the beginning of a profound friendship – but Mabel is old, and Bart is young – and suddenly alone.
Combining puppetry, live action and animation, New Owner takes us on a world of adventure through a dog’s eyes.
