A Little Bit of Blue is an interactive environmental detective story, told with puppetry. As well as unravelling a mystery, it involves learning about the unique habits of an extraordinary Australian animal, the Satin Bowerbird, and their fascination for the color blue. It is a fun frolicking mix of Detective Noir, slapstick, combined with learning about this intriguing creature.

Something has gone missing and is nowhere to be found. Mrs. Mavis Hooley has been looking everywhere. Every day a new thing seems to disappear. Little things. A $10 note. A ball of wool. It’s troubling at first, but the thief then takes it one step too far!

Mavis calls in a Detective to investigate. A stake out is required. In the dead of night, and the Detective indeed finds something peculiar…. The children’s role is to help him solve the case.

Jenny Ellis, a puppeteer of more than twenty years, weaves the whole mystery together, sometimes playing three characters at once. The young audience gasps with surprise, sighs with the sadness, shouts in outrage, cheers with triumph, and dances with joy as they follow this sneaky bowerbird on his journey to find love.
