The Famous Five: A New Musical
Based on Enid Blyton’s multi-million-selling novels, this brand new musical written by Elinor Cook, with music and lyrics by Theo Jamieson, is an exciting and heart-warming family treat celebrating adventure, bravery and friendship for everyone aged 7+.
George isn’t happy at the idea of being lumbered with three unknown cousins for the summer, and her devoted dog Timmy agrees. Her cousins aren’t keen on the prospect either. Julian’s struggling to live up to the responsibility of being the eldest; Anne is working out how to make her voice heard; while Dick would like everyone to stop fussing and focus on more important things. Like sandwiches.
But out in the bay lies Kirrin Island, with a ruined castle rumoured to harbour secrets. And it quickly becomes clear that five heads are better than one when it comes to solving mysteries…
Soon the Famous Five are on a daring mission with the future of the planet at stake!
Tamara Harvey, Artistic Director of Theatr Clwyd, directs this co-production.
There will be a Polish-interpreted performance of The Famous Five on 26 October at 7pm, and a Relaxed performance on 28 October at 2pm.
