Imago Theatre’s famous ZooZoo is back with all the bug eyes, insomniac hippos, arrogant anteaters, introverted frogs, polar bears, acrobatic worms and tricky penguins. 

ZooZoo opened in 2009.  Its signature piece FROGZ had been touring since 1979. Creator Jerry Mouawad said “In 2003 we created Biglittlethings. After exploring a number of new creature theatre pieces, we decided to take the best of FROGZ and Biglittlethings and merge them into ZooZoo. The show toured Egypt last season.  

Audiences love seeing it over and over and many young adults who saw FROGZ as children were inspired to go into theatre. 

“In fact,” Mouawad said, “we have had some of those actors return to be in Imago shows.”

Recommended for three years old and above, ZooZoo is presented December 13 to January 5 at Imago Theatre, 17 SE 8th Ave. half a block south of Burnside St.
