Performed by ZikkaZimba Productions

Playwright: ZikkaZimba Productions and Hijinks Theatre // Director: Kirsten Harris

Human beans, come to the theatre and allow your imagination to take flight! Follow Roald Dahl as a young boy and journey with him through Mrs Pratchett’s sweet shop, his early school years and meet his favourite teacher. Plunge into scrumdiddlyumtious worlds of dirty beasts; filthsome creatures, crocky-wocks and vitches. Get ready to take a leap, a jump, and fly with us through Dahl’s magical worlds.
