In a world dominated by computers, tablets and smart phones, where entertainment is of the stop start and rewind variety, surely we must introduce our younger generations to the delights of live theatre – and what could be better than this?
After enchanting audiences in the West End and all over the world, Tiddler will be swimming to Brighton next month. Prepare to go under the sea, out on the farm and into the jungle, as four terrific tales are brought to life on stage with live music, puppetry and a whole host of colourful characters from the best loved titles: Tiddler, Monkey Puzzle, The Smartest Giant in Town and A Squash and a Squeeze. Funky moves, toe tapping tunes and giggles are guaranteed.
Funky moves, toe tapping tunes and giggles!!!
Tiddler and other Terrific Tales weaves together four stories by Julia Donaldson, the multi award-winning author of some of the world’s best loved children’s books, most notably the modern classic The Gruffalo which has sold over 13 million copies worldwide. Julia is best known for her popular rhyming stories for children, especially those illustrated by Axel Scheffler, which include Zog, Stick Man and Room on the Broom.
Tiddler and other Terrific Tales is directed by Sally Cookson, with music and lyrics by Benji Bower, design by Katie Sykes, lighting design by Elanor Higgins and musical direction by Brian Hargreaves.
