This wildly exciting musical from the Roald Dahl Story Company, Leeds Playhouse and Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, which features a menagerie of puppets, toe-tapping tunes and mischievous audience interaction, premieres to brave young audiences in the Courtyard theatre at Leeds Playhouse from 2 December to 6 January before transferring to Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in summer 2024.
Director Emily Lim can’t wait to share The Enormous Crocodile with audiences: “I hope they get swept away in the magic of it all and enjoy believing that there might be a real crocodile onstage whilst also seeing a group of grown-ups having a great time running riot! We want them to be on the edge of their seats in the right way, leaning into the story. Suhayla (El-Bushra, Book and Lyrics) has always said that children should feel just the right balance of fear and excitement. I think we’re aiming for the sweet spot between the two.”
The Enormous Crocodile is in the Courtyard, Leeds Playhouse from 2nd December to 6th January. Age Guide: 4+ 50 minutes no interval.
