Land, ho! The Snail and the Whale, the much-loved, modern fable, is coming ashore this December, in a LIVE adaptation that will have little hearts (and bigger ones, too) setting sail…
Tall Stories, creators of the Gruffalo and Room on the Broom theatre productions, present their latest collaboration with Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler – an extraordinary, inventive performance that brings the heart-warming tale about a tiny snail and her humpback pal to the stage.
Just as the original story goes, a wanderlusty mollusc with an itchy foot longs to explore the big, wide world, and hitches a ride on a humpback whale to traverse the seas. On her maiden voyage, the minuscule creature beholds her seeming insignificance against the backdrop of a raging storm, towering icebergs, fiery volcanoes and other brilliantly exotic sights of strange and distant lands.
But it takes an unlikely friendship to convince the teeny snail that she and her silvery trail can do BIG things.
With an ingenious twist on the original, follow the snail and the whale’s amazing journey – as seen through the eyes of an adventurous young girl and her seafaring father…
True to the beautiful illustrations and rhyming text of the book, the show is a lyrical, visual delight; clever props, vivid scenery and charming sing-a-longs will keep the whole family entertained from start to finish.
