Think you know the stories of The Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Goldilocks and Jack and the Beanstalk? Think again!

Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts bursts off the page in a spectacular new live show, taking the world’s best-loved fairy tales and rearranging them with some unexpected and hilarious twists. A visual feast that combines a rocking sound track, immersive lighting design, dance, song, shadow puppetry and four of the country’s best comic actors who bring over 40 characters to life.

This fast-moving, always surprising show is a celebration of the world’s number one storyteller. Hailed by audiences and critics alike, Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts has been described as ‘flawlessly funny… beautifully gratifying, clever stuff’(Weekend Notes) and ‘…delights and revolts… the audience lapped it up…’ (The Courier-Mail).

Seriously funny and frighteningly silly, Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts is the perfect entertainment for children 5 to 105.
