About The Hunting of The Snark

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 four to 94 year olds.  

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

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.

"Packed to the gunwales with laughter and Mayhem" ★★★★★ - Edinburgh Evening News 

"A bit bonkers and a bit crazy... Heartwarming and very, very funny. Sometimes some of the best theatre is made for young people." - BBC Scotland Radio 

"Like Raiders of the Lost Ark meets Bedknobs and Broomsticks." - The Stage
