It’s Creative

You might be wondering how a book about a snail and a whale can be performed on stage, but this production is hugely creative. It reimagines the story using an adventurous little girl and her more nervous dad.


The Set

The set of the show is wonderful, it sets the tone perfectly and creatively without being over-the-top. It works really well for kids as it’s not overwhelming and easy to understand.

Lovely Music

The show is set to some beautiful live music to help add to the atmosphere, it really transports you into the story and makes you feel as though you’ve stepped into the pages of the much-loved book.

The cast (and the snails)

It’s Interactive 

A great way to bring theatre to life for kids is to get them involved! The Snail and The Whale cast do this really well and get the audience involved in a subtle but fun way.

It's Brilliant!

The final reason we love this show is because it’s just brilliant! Tall Stories, the team behind the performance, were also responsible for The Gruffalo and Room On The Broom which were huge successes too.
