Roald Dahl’s The Twits
Adapted for the stage by Tim Bray
Songs by Christine White
Created for Ages: 5 – 10
Show Run Time: 50 mins
25 Sep – 13 Nov
A delicious Roald Dahl creation. Mr and Mrs Twit are nasty and love playing tricks on each other. The things they get up to are a sight to behold! Would you like a glass eyeball in your drink? How about some worms in your spaghetti? Who doesn’t like a slimy frog in their bed? And would you believe how they make their favourite treat, Wednesday Bird Pie….it’s a sticky idea. Their antics will have you gasping in amusement and giggling along.
But when Mr Twit turns his nasty attentions to creating the World’s First Upside-Down Monkey Circus with Muggle-Wump the monkey, things get turned upside down and the Twits get a dose of their own nasty ways.
Costume Parade: Dress up in character! We love to see imaginations running wild and encourage our young audience to dress up as their favourite Twits characters. We will show off the costumes onstage with a parade at the start of the performance (Note: School Holiday shows and Term Time Saturday shows only).
“Tim Bray has directed another engaging piece of old-school family theatre… Plenty of clever jokes, stupid jokes, audience participation games and sing-along numbers make for a fulfilling hour’s theatre”.
Nik Smythe, Theatreview (2008)
