Selladoor Family and Belgrade Theatre present
It’s really quite simple. This is a play (with songs) based on the book The Quite Remarkable Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat, by Eric Idle (who was in Monty Python), inspired by the poem, The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear. Got it?
Selladoor Family are delighted to be bringing Eric Idle's best selling nonsensical book to the stage in this musical adaptation written by Dougal Irvine in this exciting co-production with the Belgrade Theatre, directed by Artistic Director Hamish Glen.
This surreal and brilliantly chaotic new musical follows the Owl and the Pussycat on their mission to save the world and defeat the dastardly Firelord, his imaginary dragon, Pyron, and his henchmen, Flicker and Brimstone.
With Professor Bosh’s help, they seek the magical Bong Tree which will lead them all to safety in the Land of Bong.
Their adventures take them across the Gromboolian Plains, down a river of jam, and over a frozen rainbow – helped on their way by a host of wonderful characters including a resurrected dinosaur skeleton, the Pie-Rats and a dancing Pig in sunglasses.
This fantastically imaginative new musical adaptation of Eric Idle’s best-selling book is a celebration of nonsense, and is sure to enthral and delight children aged 6+, their families and anyone with a sense of fun and wonder.
Cast: Danny Lane, Lizzie Wofford, Miri Gellert, Sally Frith, Vedi Roy, Yanick Ghanty and Dougal Irvine
