The Hunting Of The Snark (Alice House Theatre)

The Hunting of the Snark

All singing, all dancing – ‘The Hunting of the Snark’ is infectiously funny children’s theatre that the whole family can get on board with. It’s an hour in which you will not stop laughing. This modern take on the Lewis Carroll classic sees a group of adventurers take to the seven seas, in search of the ever elusive Snark. Although the characterisation can sometimes rely heavily upon stereotypes, the story is endearing. Live music comes in the form of Steve and his guitar, with big musical numbers punctuating the story and engaging the giggling audience. The Green is a spectacular space, but once you throw in the puppetry and props you’ve got an experience you’d struggle to find elsewhere.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 31 Aug.
