The Snail and the Whale

June 27th - June 29th

 

Tall Stories presents

The Snail and the Whale

A play with music inspired by the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
Join an adventurous young girl and her seafaring father as they reimagine the story of a tiny snail’s incredible trip around the world, inspired by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved picture book.

Longing to see the world, a tiny sea snail hitches a lift on the tail of a great big, grey-blue humpback whale. Together they go on an amazing journey, brought vividly to life through live music, storytelling and lots of laughs – but when the whale gets beached, how will the snail save him?

A heart-warming adventure for everyone aged four and up, from Tall Stories, the Olivier Award-nominated company that brought you ‘The Gruffalo’ and ‘Room on the Broom’ live on stage.

Ages 4+

Running time 55 minutes (no interval)

★★★★★  ‘Faultless family fare… One of the best examples of children’s theatre’ WhatsOnStage

★★★★★  ‘Joyous in every way… a textbook example of how to do theatre for children right.’ Broadway Baby

‘An exquisite piece of theatre’ The Stage

★★★★★  ‘Captivating, inventive storytelling along with beautiful live music and songs – it’s highly recommended that you climb aboard and set sail!’ Edinburgh Festivals for Kids

Event Reviews

  • Michael

    Saw this with first granddaughter on 27.06.2021 - she loved it, we loved it, everyone joined in. Excellent adorable take on a lovely tail. Positive that anyone between three and ninety-three will enjoy.
