Event: -
See one of your favourite Roald Dahl books come to life on stage
Three shows in three days on September 2nd, 3rd and 4th, 2019.

I don't think anyone can grow up without knowing who Roald Dahl is! His books have sold over more than 250 million copies worldwide. The Twits was my favourite and I had mum read it over and over to me every night. Then there's the movies made like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The Witches and The BFG, just to name a few! It will have you laughing in your seat with a spectacular live stage show full of wit, charm, magic and humour. The Shake & Stir Theatre Co have worked hard at this production to stay true to the original intention and keep it feeling like a story.
Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts
Delightful and disgusting!

Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts is perfect for the family and suitable for ages 4 years old and up. It will both delight and disgust you all at the same time! This is a spectacular live show which takes some of the best-loved fairytales including The Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Goldilocks and Jack and the Beanstalk, and rearranges them with a surprising twist! This is your chance to see the multi-Helpmann Award-nominated production penned by the world's number one storyteller.

From the team that brought you George's Marvellous Medicine, Director Ross Balbuziente works with an amazing cast of four. The flawlessly funny cast includes Nick Skubjj, Nellie Lee, Leon Cain and Judy Hainsworth. The physically demanding roles have them use minimal props and accessories in order to present Dahl's eccentric characters.
