Wicked is based on The Wizard Of Oz and tells the story of a smart, shy, green-skinned Witch called Elphaba and the blond, popular girl called Glinda. Brought together by fate on the first day of sorcery school, the unlikely pair become unlikely friends!

But the pair’s friendship is put to the test when they meet The Wizard of Oz…

The famed wizard reveals the differences between Elphaba and Glinda, forcing them on two very different paths which eventually lead to them fulfilling their destinies as The Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt

Music, laughter, rhymes, rhythms and repetitions together with puppetry, paint, water and mud… mischievous family show We’re Going On A Bear Hunt is back in the West End!

Inviting families to join an intrepid team of explorers – and their musical dog – in their exciting fun-filled adventure, We’re Going OnA Bear Hunt returns to London at the Lyric Theatre in Summer 2018 – the perfect theatrical outing for all young families.

Along the way, there’re plenty of obstacles to overcome, including swishy swashy grass, the splishy splashy river and the oozy squelchy mud, in search of a bear. But as the explorers soon learn – they can’t go under it, they can’t go over it – so they’ll have to go through it!

The Tiger Who Came to Tea

The magical show follows Sophie and her Mummy who welcome a very hungry tiger to tea. Unfortunately, the ravenous guest consumes all the food: the sandwiches, buns, biscuits, and more. It even drinks all the water in the tap. With Sophie’s Daddy arriving home soon, what is she going to do?

This musical slice of mayhem is full of sing-a-long songs, interactive fun and joy. It’s the ideal introduction to theatre for children aged 3 and over. And as it’s during the summer holiday, it’s a great way to keep the whole family entertained.
