The Little Pig with Big Dreams
Based on the best-selling book by Dick King Smith
A play by David Wood
Directed by Michael Fentiman
Meet the lovable Babe in a heart-warming tale of friendship, adventure and bravery.
When Babe arrives at Hogget’s Farm he is taken in by the trusty sheep-dog Fly and discovers a talent for herding. With the help of his adopted Mum, our polite piglet soon wins over the most suspicious of sheep. But can a small pig make it in a dog’s world, and when his farmyard friends are in trouble can Babe save the day?
Join us for an enchanting family favourite, as the classic novel which inspired the Oscar-winning film, is brought to life by a cast of West End performers in a show brimming with laughter, thrills, stunning puppetry and original live music.
Amazing puppetry by the teams behind War Horse and Cirque Du Soleil, adapted by Olivier Award winner David Wood (Goodnight Mister Tom, James and the Giant Peach, The BFG), Babe follows the incredible story of one piglet’s rise to become the world famous Sheep-Pig.
“Hands down our most exciting theatre outing yet”
“The entire audience was memorised… the original music is delightful… little theatre goers alternated between watching the play wide-eyed and dancing in their seats” YORKSHIRE TOTS
“The magic is created largely by the excellence of the puppetry skills… remarkably convincing… the effect of this has to be seen to be fully appreciated”
“At the end of the evening, we’ve been entertained, deliciously scared, made to laugh and brought to near tears”
