The Folksy Theatre group will be visiting the Borough as part of their UK Summer tour with an open-air production of ‘The Smartest Giant In Town’. Adapted from the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, this family musical will take place in the beautiful setting of Brocks Hill's ampitheatre on 19 August at 11am and 2pm.
‘The Smartest Giant In Town’ tells the story of George the scruffiest giant in town. One day, when George sees a shop stocking giant-size clothes, he decides it's time to update his image. With smart clothes, George is a new man. However, as he journeys home, he meets various animals who desperately need his help. George's kind heart and generosity take him on an adventure where he discovers that it's not how you look that's important but how you feel.
Folksy's musical adaptation of this wonderful book will be filled with puppetry, colourful characters and songs that will have you clapping and singing along!
Lee Hardwicke, Director said: “This is a really fun production with great characters and songs. The use of music and puppetry, mixed with the open-air setting, means there’s something for everyone. It’s an ideal family show!”
