Little Angel Theatre Artistic Director Samantha Lane and Executive Director Peta Swindall introduce the new season: “We are delighted to have a number of Little Angel productions out on the road this year including ‘The Smartest Giant in Town’, ‘The Singing Mermaid’, ‘There’s a Rang-Tan in my Bedroom and other stories’ and ‘Me’. After reaching so many new families during lockdown with our digital work, it is fantastic that our audiences can keep growing and new people far and wide can experience these beautiful stories live in their local theatres.
“Back at Little Angel Theatre, we are co-producing ‘The King of Nothing’ a brand-new take on ‘The Emperors New Clothes’ with puppetry company MONSTRO, using music, puppets and slapstick comedy to reimagine the classic Hans Christian Andersen story. This will run alongside a magical new Little Angel production – ‘Little Angel Theatre’s Miniature Travelling Circus’ in our Studio space, full of interactive fun for our younger audiences.
“Perfect for families over Christmas, ‘The Pixie and the Pudding’ will bring some music and magic to Little Angel Studios and runs alongside Michael Rosen’s classic ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ at Little Angel Theatre. Both productions feature the wonderful work of Barb Jungr whose original songs and lyrics can also be heard in ‘The Smartest Giant in Town’ which is not only touring but will also be running in tandem with ‘The Mousetrap’ at St Martin’s Theatre when it transfers to the West End over Christmas – the first production to do so in The Mousetrap’s 48-year history.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to bring these beloved stories to so many new audiences, we hope there is something for everyone to enjoy!”
