Meet Oona the elephant and win tickets to see her in the jungle

ELEPHANTS, tigers and orang-utans will be stampeding into the Lyceum Theatre to bring an epic production to life.

Running Wild is described as “a show like no other” about a young girl called Lilly who travels to Indonesia with her mum – but this isn’t just another holiday.

The adventure, which is adapted from Michael Morpurgo’s novel of the same name, is a new start for the family and a chance for Lilly to ride an elephant called Oona. 

But then things take a dramatic turn as a tsunami hits and Oona charges into the jungle, with Lilly desperately clinging on.

Using puppetry and an ensemble cast, the world of the Indonesian jungle is brought to life in this story exploring love, loss, loyalty and living for the moment.

The show, which is suitable for children aged six and over, is at the Lyceum Theatre in Sheffield from March 7 to 11.

The Rotherham Advertiser is offering you the chance to win a family ticket to the show – see this week’s Clipper Club page for how to enter.

The Advertiser is out now.

Children also have the chance to meet Oona the elephant tomorrow (Wednesday) at 12.15pm in Meadowhall.

Oona will be near Boots and WH Smith with her puppeteers to meet shoppers.
