Revolting Rhymes - Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs presented by Tom Crowley with The Everyman on 27 Feb - 1 Mar 2019


Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs presented by Tom Crowley with The Everyman

Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes have been entertaining audiences young and old for generations. Having brought the house down in 2019, The Everyman once again brings together a narrator with some of the finest musicians in the country.

This fantastic double–billing of two favourites: Little Red Riding Hood and the Three Little Pigs will delight audiences anew.

A great introduction to the instruments of the orchestra, Dahl’s naughty, mischievous humour is brought to life in this adaptation by the celebrated composer Paul Patterson – a musical setting with a narrator and an 11–piece orchestra with conductor that is sure to blow your house in!

“Fantastic show. Both narrator and orchestra were outstanding” AOIFE NI CHRUALAOI, CORK TEACHER

“A highlight of our children’s school year” CAROL DUGGAN, CORK TEACHER

World Book Day is coming up on March 5th, and to celebrate we’ll running a great kids’ colouring competition!

See the Teaching & Learning Pack for Revolting Rhymes.
