The Hunting of the Snark

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 family musical adventure.

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

When a ragtag gang of bold explorers set off on a quest to catch the highly prized mythical Snark, not only do they have the adventure of their lives, but they make a far more valuable discovery…

Fresh from its West End debut, the show features five high-energy performers, life-like puppets, fantastical creatures, and lashings of daft humour.

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.

A bit bonkers and a bit crazy… heartwarming and very, very funny.  Sometimes some of the best theatre is made for young people.
