About the Show

We unveiled our original adaptation of the beloved tales of master storyteller Beatrix Potter, which featured many of your favourite Spontaneous actors and songs based on well-known English folk songs. There was amazing action, fabulous dance routines, wonderful costumes, crazy chases – and the giant gardener Mr McGregor!

Welcome to the wonderful world of Beatrix Potter where Peter Rabbit, Pigling Bland, Mrs Tiggywinkle, Jemima Puddleduck, Jeremy Fisher, Mr Tod the fox and more of her countryside creations are having a very challenging day at the hands of Mr McGregor. Can the animals save the day, along with Peter’s lost jacket?

This was our 18th original family show since 2017 and the sixth we have staged in Mayow Park’s bowling green. From the same team that brought you Alice in Wonderland in 2019, Puss in Boots in 2020, and The Gingerbread Man in 2021, our shows are fun, fast-moving and musical versions of well-known stories, always with a bit of a twist.
