From the makers of Peppa Pig comes the first stage version of the BAFTA award-winning kids TV animation, Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom at the Lyceum Theatre this weekend.
The charmingly magical animation about elves, princesses and childhood innocence is brought to life on stage as Ben and Holly embark on more new adventures in the Little Kingdom, including helping Gaston the ladybird clean up his messy cave, taking a trip to The Big World with tooth-fairy Nanny Plum and planning a surprise for King Elf’s birthday party, complete with an unplanned jelly flood.
Richard Lewis, manging director of Limelight Productions, has adapted the TV animation for the stage. Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom is produced by Fiery Angel and Limelight who were responsible for LazyTown Live, Roald Dahl’s The BFG and the two Peppa Pig tours.
The actors will wear masks created by Russell Dean, artistic director of Strangeface Theatre Company, who worked for a number of years with the award-winning Trestle Theatre Company as their designer and mask-maker.
It is packed with singing, dancing, fun and games with original music by Mani Svavarsson and lyrics by Matt Lewis.
Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom is at the Lyceum Theatre, Friday, 4pm and Saturday, 10am, 1pm and 4pm.
