A family musical version of Lewis Carroll’s classic nonsense poem The Hunting of the Snark will make its West End debut this summer.
Following on from its world premiere at Cardiff’s Sherman Theatre last year and a successful run at the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts, the family musical adventure will begin previewing at the Vaudeville Theatre on 26 July ahead of a press night on 28 July.
After completing its West End run on 2 September, the show will embark on a national tour from 25 September until 19 November, taking in dates in Guildford and ending in Salford.
From the lead producer of hit musical Priscilla Queen of the Desert, RGM Productions, and inspired by Carroll’s much-loved work, the show has been written by Annabel Wogoder with music and lyrics by Gareth Cooper.
Produced in association with Alice House Theatre and originally co-produced by the Sherman Theatre, The Hunting of the Snark is directed by Gemma Colclough with musical direction by Gareth Cooper and design by Justin Nardella.
Featuring five actors, a life-like puppet, fantastical characters and song, the creator of Alice in Wonderland’s imaginative work is brought to life in a show aimed at the whole family.
