Julia & Malcolm Donaldson in association with Scamp Theatre

Gruffalos, Ladybirds, and Other Beasts - with Julia Donaldson

9 Sep 2017 - 10 Sep 2017

The UK’s best-selling author Julia Donaldson brings her stories and books to life with a cast of five including her guitar-playing husband Malcolm. Her show “Gruffalos Ladybirds and Other Beasts” was a sell-out at The Edinburgh Fringe in 2015 ("The sets all pay homage to the original illustrations, the stories never lose pace, and we can all join in the lines",The Scotsman) and has since been performed in Oxford, Bristol and Stratford in 2016 and at KidsFest in Hong Kong and Singapore in 2017. Featured books include What the Ladybird Heard (“Flamboyant colors, zany perspectives and … a happy outcome for all but the thieves." Washington Post); Zog (“Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler are a combination made in heaven” Independent on Sunday); Jack and the Flumflum Tree (“Julia Donaldson’s engaging rhyming text is perfectly accompanied by beautiful and quirky illustrations by David Roberts” Booktrust) and of course The Gruffalo (“A modern classic” The Observer).

There will be a book signing and a chance to meet Julia after each show.

Suitable for 4+ years.
