The Hunting Of The SnarkDuration 1h10

Vaudeville Theatre, Strand, London, United Kingdom, WC2R 0NH

All aboard! The ship is departing! All children, animals and silly people welcome!

The impossible voyage of an improbable crew to hunt an imaginary creature is brought magically to life in this sparkling musical comedy adventure.

Enter the imaginative world of Alice in Wonderland creator, Lewis Carroll, in this brand new, highly original, ultra-modern adaptation inspired by his beloved classic poem. The show features five high-energy actors, a life-like puppet, fantastical characters, and lashings of daft humour.

A riotous ragtag gang of bold adventurers including The Boy, The Banker, The Butcher, The Baker, The Bellman and The Knitting Beaver set off on a quest to catch the mythical Snark… on the journey they encounter the Jub Jub Bird, the sly Bandersnatch and the dastardly Boojum… Can a Snark be caught with soap? Will the Beaver escape the hungry Butcher’s clutches? Will the Baker remember his name? Does anyone know what a Snark actually looks like?

Gemma Colclough will direct Will Bryant (The Baker & The Bandernatch), Ben Galpin (The Bellman), Jordan Leigh-Harris (Boy), Simon Turner (The Banker) and Polly Smith (The Butcher).

Side-splittingly funny, joyful, fast-paced and bursting with a soundtrack of witty songs by an award-winning songwriter, The Hunting Of The Snark will delight, excite and entertain.

This is a show suitable for all families and for anyone aged 0 - 10!
