Ring A Ding Ding is presented by London's Oily Cart Company. Oily Cart has been touring their unique brand of theatre primarily in the UK since 1981. Their mission is to create all sorts of shows for all sorts of kids, and they do it by creating imaginative interactive wonderlands for sets. Among their tools of the trade have been hydro-therapy pools, trampolines, aromatherapy, video projection, and of course puppets. Their shows are designed for young kids and sometimes especially designed for young people with profound and/or multiple learning disabilities.

The show they are presenting at the New Victory is designed for kids ages 2-5 and features a runaway dog, a tricycle riding heroine, a spinning table, and George the Music Man, who makes Ring A Ding Ding sing with zing. The show runs approximately 55 minutes without intermission. Tickets are $20 for non-members, $14 for members, and HIGHLY WORTHWHILE. You should see it if you can!
Here's a promotional video of the show.
