Lyric Hammersmith presents Many Whoops

First Published 25 June 2013, Last Updated 25 June 2013

Award-winning children’s theatre company Look Left Look Right will present the world premiere of its new show The Many Whoops Of Whoops Town at the Lyric Hammersmith this autumn.

Playing as part of the previously announced Family Arts Festival, the whooptastic extravaganza will run from 29 October to 2 November and entertain young theatregoers aged four and older as they meet the enchanting residents of Whoops Town for some interactive fun.

The show is just one of many treats lined up for the family-friendly venue’s autumn/winter season. Kicking things off in September is the magically titled I Believe In Unicorns, which plays on 27 and 28 September for children aged five to 11-years-old and retells War Horse author Michael Morpurgo’s spellbinding story.

The magical theme will continue on 5 October when Garlic Theatre presents a puppetry adaptation of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice for children aged four to seven-years-old, before food takes centre stage with Tell Tale Hearts’ Yummm!, an imaginative show about that favourite time of day, dinner time, which plays on 12 October.

Later in the month two famous tales receive theatrical makeovers suitable for three to seven-year-olds, with The Boy Who Cried Wolf playing on 18 and 19 October, and puppetry storytelling company Theatre Of Widdershins presenting Three Billy Goats Gruff & Other Furry Tails on 26 October.

Things really take off, however, in November when the Noisy Animals Band gets set to shoot off into outer space in Blast Off!. Playing on 9 November and suitable for children aged four to seven-years-old, the exciting Kid Carpet and Tobacco Factory theatre production will reveal whether the band ever makes it back down to earth.

The season, which includes the previously announced revival of Raymond Briggs’ Father Christmas and the venue’s annual pantomime Jack And The Beanstalk, will also offer children the chance to get crafty with the return of the Saturday Messy Play workshops, where participants can get creative and make their own memento of a show to take home with them.
