The Famous Five: A New Musical

The Famous Five are on a daring mission with the future of the planet at stake! Based on Enid Blyton’s multi-million-selling novels, this new musical written by Elinor Cook, with music & lyrics by Theo Jamieson, is an exciting family treat celebrating adventure and friendship for ages 7+.

George isn’t happy at the idea of being lumbered with three unknown cousins for the summer, and her devoted dog Timmy agrees. Her cousins aren’t keen on the prospect either. Julian’s struggling to live up to the responsibility of being the eldest; Anne is working out how to make her voice heard; while Dick would like everyone to stop fussing and focus on more important things. Like sandwiches.

But out in the bay lies Kirrin Island, with a ruined castle rumoured to harbour secrets. And it quickly becomes clear that five heads are better than one when it comes to solving mysteries.

Directed by Tamara Harvey.
