A Picnic And A Play Open-Air Production of The Smartest Giant In Town Touring summer 2017
This summer Folksy Theatre will be touring the UK with an open-air production of “The Smartest Giant In Town”.
June 20, 2017 ( datsyn.com) – Adapted from the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, this family musical will take place in a number of beautiful outdoor settings.
George was the scruffiest giant in town. But one day, when he sees a shop stocking giant-size clothes, he decides it’s time to update his image. With smart clothes, George is a new man. However, as he journeys home, he meets various animals who desperately need his help. George’s kind heart and generosity take him on an adventure where he discovers that it’s not how you look that’s important but how you feel.
Folksy’s musical adaptation of this wonderful book will be filled with puppetry, colourful characters and songs that will have you clapping and singing along!
“This is a really fun production with great characters and songs. The use of music and puppetry, mixed with the open-air setting, means there’s something for everyone. It’s an ideal family show!” Lee Hardwicke – Director
Bring along your picnics, blankets, folding chairs and friends and family to enjoy this wonderful open-air production at Adlington Hall & Gardens on Friday 18th August
