Fantastic Mr Fox
Wed 5th – Sun 9th July
Nuffield and Curve Theatres in association with Lyric Hammersmith present a brand new adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox. Family fun at its finest, this tale of greed, pride and the power of friendship forms the flagship celebration for the Roald Dahl 100 anniversary and promises to be a huge theatrical feast with live music and songs, ideal for the whole family.
The Tiger Who Came To Tea
Thu 27th – Sun 30th July
The truly magical Olivier Award nominated West End production The Tiger Who Came to Tea is roaring back onto the Lyric theatre stage and is the ideal introduction to theatre for children aged three plus and the perfect treat for the whole family. Adapted and directed by David Wood OBE, Judith Kerr’s ever popular tale tells the story of When Sophie and her Mummy welcome the hungry Tiger to tea; who proceeds to eat all the sandwiches, buns, biscuits and more. He even manages to drink all the water in the tap! What will Sophie’s Daddy say when he gets home?
Tue 25th – Sat 29th July
Regan De Wynter Williams Productions will present Sasha Regan’s all-male The Mikado at The Lowry, with a specially adapted dementia friendly performance on Wed 26 July. Following the highly successful all-male tours of H.M.S. Pinafore and The Pirates of Penzance, Sasha Regan returns to Salford with the irresistible The Mikado – one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most famous operettas. The crazy storyline takes us to 1950s England where a school camping trip is visiting the far away land of Titipu – a place where flirting is banned on pain of death and where tailors can become Lord High Executioners but cannot cut off another’s head, until they have cut off their own!
Lowry At Home: Salford 1966
