“Deceptively simple but executed with considerable sophistication… New Owner sits perfectly in the timeless tradition of storytelling for children, and the child in all of us.”

The Last Great Hunt






A story of love, loss and new beginnings.

From the creators of international smash hits The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer and It’s Dark Outside comes a sensitive new family show about friendship, loss and new beginnings.

Bart is a boisterous puppy waiting to be chosen from the animal shelter. Mabel is a lonely widow, trying to fill the hole in her heart. The day they find each other is the beginning of a profound friendship. But Mabel is old, and Bart is young – and suddenly alone. Combining puppetry, live action and animation, New Owner takes you on a world of adventure through a dog’s eyes.

Due to the limited capacity of this Showcase, delegates are required to sign up for this event at the Delegate Lounge or at any APAM Information Desk.
