Roll up; roll up and join Dr Longitude on his hilarious, puppet – packed quest for imaginary animals in the most ‘magnifical’, ‘tremendible’ and ‘fantasticulous’ show in town!
Watch the caravan of curiosities and its crew of mysterious misfits as they discover if bumblewasps are poisonous, what whistling panks eat, what happens when you lick trisillian toads, and whether the fabled Brian May Cow actually exists?
Help them answer these and more pointless questions in a ludicrously lyrical and magically musical tour from the acclaimed creators of Alice’s Adventures Underground, The Trench, and Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs.
An indoor theatre version of the silliest, funniest and most entertaining family show to date – suitable for big kids and small grown-ups!
