Synopsis


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 to life in this musical comedy adventure for 4 to 94 year olds.


Enter the imaginative world of Alice in Wonderland creator, Lewis Carroll, in this brand new, highly original, ultra-modern adaptation inspired by his much-loved classic poem.


This show features five high-energy actors, life-like puppets, 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?


Side-splittingly funny, joyful, fast-paced and bursting with a soundtrack of witty songs by an award-winning songwriter, The Hunting of the Snark is a tour de force that'll delight, excite and entertain.
