The impossible voyage of an improbable crew to hunt an imaginary creature is brought magically to life in the sparkling musical comedy adventure.

Enter the imaginative world of Alice in Wonderland creator, Lewis Carroll, in this brand new, highly original, ultra-modern adaptation inspired by his beloved classic poem. The show features five high-energy actors, a life-like puppet, fantastical characters, and lashings of daft humour.

The Hunting Of The Snark is currently playing at the Vaudeville Theatre until 26 August.

This year marks the 20th Kids Week, which began in 1998 and over the years has reached over 1.2 million children and families. One of the world’s longest running audience development initiatives, Kids Week encourages young people to experience live theatre.

During Kids Week, one child aged 16 or under can go free to a wide range of participating shows when accompanied by an adult paying full price. In addition, two extra children can go for half price, and there are no booking, postage or transaction fees.

You can book your The Hunting Of The Snark tickets through the Kids Week website.
