About the Show Less...

A brand new children's dance theatre show, based on the award-winning book. Read More >

Varmints is the brand new children’s dance theatre show, which tells the poignant tale of one small creature’s struggle to preserve a world in danger of being lost forever. Every day the city grows larger and the noise grows louder, until there is so much noise that no-one can hear themselves think.

Based on the award-winning book by Helen Ward with beautiful illustrations by Marc Craste, this thrilling production is choreographed by B-boy and New Wave Associate Wilkie Branson and directed by children’s theatre specialist Sally Cookson, who brought their brilliantly energetic Christmas show BOING! to Sadler’s Wells Lilian Baylis Studio for a second time last year.

Age Guidance: 8+

Free post-show talk for ticket holders (BSL): Saturday 18 May at 2.30pm
