The Hunting of the Snark

Tuesday 14 November 2017

Devonshire Park Theatre

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 beloved classic poem.
   
Fresh from London’s West End, this show features five high-energy actors, a life-like puppet, fantastical characters, and lashings of daft humour.
 
A riotous ragtag gang of bold adventurers including the Banker, the Boy, 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 an award-winning soundtrack of witty and memorable songs, The Hunting of the Snark will delight, excite and entertain.

Reviews

★★★★ "Like Raiders of the Lost Ark meets Bedknobs and Broomsticks.  There’s a slick slapstick and zippy one-liners, plus a string of snappy songs that are eminently hummable.’ The Stage

★★★★★ "Packed to the gunnels with laughter and mayhem, there’s plenty of great moments for the kids (and adults)." Edinburgh Evening News
