Theatre Royal, Wakefield

Details of upcoming performances at The Theatre Royal in Wakefield:



Thumbelina, 5 - 7 May

Thumbelina dances and Thumbelina sings,
Thumbelina finds trouble in all sorts of things.
She makes her choices, ignores the wisest voices,
Landing slap bang in the middle of strife,
Leading to a topsy turvy life!
Come and join us for this tall tale of adventure and see the big, wide world through the eyes of a little girl no bigger than your thumb!
This contemporary retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s tiny heroine will take you on a thrilling journey with plenty of twists and turns that will delight and charm little hearts and minds.
In On The Act, Theatre Royal Wakefield’s young company for aspiring theatre-makers bring new life to this childrens classic with a mix of song, movement and storytelling for thoroughly modern children aged 3 to 6 years.
