**** A daffy yarn with dash, hilarity and a sweet heart. Gleefully silly.”  THE TIMES
**** … as an introduction to the magic of theatre, it is hard to beat.” RADIO TIMES

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

Come and join our ragtag band of explorers on a side-splittingly funny, joyful, fast-paced journey to hunt the mythical creature and encounter a parade of fantastical creatures and a soundtrack of witty songs.  


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 much loved classic poem.

Fresh from London’s West End, this show features five high-energy actors, life-like puppets, 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 is a tour de force that‘ll delight, excite and entertain.
