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 production for 4 to 7-year olds and their families is 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?

The Lion Inside creatively and playfully explores facing fears, feeling positive and dealing with change.
