The Hunting of the Snark, a brand-new family musical inspired by the creator of Alice and Wonderland’s beloved classic poem.

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.

Gemma Colclough directs Simon Turner (The Banker), Ben Galpin (The Bellman), Polly Smith (The Butcher), Will Bryant (The Baker & The Bandersnatch), Jordan Leigh-Harris (Boy) in this family musical adventure.

Following the West End run the show will continue a national tour around the country from 25th September to 19 November and will be playing at Waterside Arts Sale, The Met in Bury and the Lowry Theatre.

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 this sparkling musical comedy adventure for 4 to 94 year olds.

Enter the imaginative world of Alice in Wonderland creator, Lewis Carroll, in this brand new, highly original, ultra-modern adaptation inspired by his beloved classic poem.

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?

Side-splittingly funny, joyful, fast-paced and bursting with a soundtrack of witty songs by an award-winning songwriter, The Hunting of the Snark will delight, excite and entertain.
