Show Information

Enter into the imaginative world of Lewis Carroll (author of Alice in Wonderland) in this adaptation of his beloved classic poem, The Hunting of the Snark. A musical comedy adventure featuring puppetry, lashings of silliness and an original soundtrack that will delight, excite and entertain in this new summer family production by the Sherman.

Join the riotous ragtag band of bold adventurers including the Banker, the Boy, the Butcher, the Baker, Mr Bellman, the Bandersnatch, the Boojum and the knitting Beaver, as they set off on an epic quest to catch the elusive Snark.

See it here first before the Snark sets off on a world tour including Hong Kong and further sightings across the globe.
