Stiles & Drewe might just be the kings of family musical theatre. With dozens of hits under their Olivier Award-winning belts from Honk! to Mary Poppins, they have won audiences over young and old with their witty lyrics, catchy numbers and warm-hearted shows for decades.
While you’ll no doubt know your Chim chiminey’s from your Chim Chim Cher-ee’s, what you might not know is this talented duo met at university where Drewe was studying zoology. It’s fitting therefore that their latest offering to theatre loving families follows in the (webbed) footsteps of Honk!, Betty Blues Eyes, Just So and many more of their hit shows to put animals centre stage as they give the classic tale of The 3 Little Pigs a curly tailed twist.
To get you squealing with excitement, we spoke to the show’s star piglets, former Blue star Simon Webbe, Olivier Award-winning Leanne Jones and Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist Alison Jiear at an exclusive press launch last month to find out more.
Watch the video above to discover why they jumped at the chance of working with musical theatre royalty and to hear excerpts from a couple of pun-tastic numbers.
