A family musical adventure, based on Monty Python star Terry Jones’s children’s tale Nicobobinus, will come to St Michael’s Village Hall tomorrow.
The show, at 2.30pm, from Red Ladder and DumbWise, is suitable for children aged six and over, and is about a boy ‘who could do anything’.
In a land where dragons are locked in boiler rooms and mountains move like oceans, Nicobobinus and his best friend Rosie embark on a wild globetrotting adventure to cure him of a golden curse.
The show involves five actor musicians who bring this epic tale to life with original songs, instrumental acrobatics, moving sets and a bucket load of Monty-Python-esque wit.
Terry Jones said: “Nicobobinus is one of my favourite characters – he’s full of magic and charm and jumps off the page with no trouble. I saw an in-development version of the show last year at Greenwich Theatre and was blown away by its energy and vibrancy – and I wish it all the luck in the world on tour!”
The show forms part of Spot On Lancashire’s rural touring spring season.
