Relaxed Performance – Lyric Theatre

From our friends at Kenny Wax Productions…

Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks’ best-selling picture book What the Ladybird Heard makes its West End debut this summer at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue. And there will be a RELAXED PERFORMANCE on Tuesday 8th August 2017.

Please note this is not a Mousetrap event and tickets must be booked directly through the details as noted below.

Two crafty robbers, one tiny ladybird, and a whole farmyard of fun!

Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len have a cunning plan to steal the farmer’s fine prize cow. But they reckon without the tiniest, quietest creature of all: The Ladybird has a plan of her own!

Join the woolly sheep, the hairy hog, the fat red hen and the dainty dog in this glittering stage adaptation of Julia Donaldson & Lydia Monks’ colourful farmyard adventure. With live music, puppetry, plenty of audience participation and lots of laughs!

Recommended for ages 3+

Running Time: 55 mins
