Musical adaptation of The Hunting of the Snark to receive West End Première

A brand new family musical adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of the Snark will receive it’s West End première this summer.

Inspired by the creator of Alice and Wonderland’s beloved classic poem and from the lead producer of the international smash hit musical, Priscilla Queen of the Desert The Musical, The Hunting of the Snark made its world première in Cardiff at the Sherman Theatre last year followed by a run at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.

All aboard! The ship is departing! All children, animals and silly people welcome!

The impossible voyage of an improbable crew to hunt an imaginary creature is brought magically to life in the sparkling musical comedy adventure for 4 to 94 year olds.

This show features five high-energy actors, a life-like puppet, fantastical characters, and lashings of daft humour.

A riotous ragtag gang of bold adventurers including The Boy, The Banker, The Butcher, The Baker, The Bellman and The Knitting Beaver set off on a quest to catch the mythical Snark… on the journey they encounter the Jub Jub Bird, the sly Bandersnatch and the dastardly Boojum… Can a Snark be caught with soap? Will the Beaver escape the hungry Butcher’s clutches? Will the Baker remember his name? Does anyone know what a Snark actually looks like?

Billed as side-splittingly funny, joyful, fast-paced and bursting with a soundtrack of witty songs by an award-winning songwriter, The Hunting of the Snark is expected to be a big hit with families this summer.

The Hunting of the Snarl opens at the Vaudeville Theatre on 28 July, with previews from 26 July until 2 September before embarking on a national tour.
