Roald Dahl’s The Enormous Crocodile Opening at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre

After an amazing run over Christmas at Leeds Playhouse, family friendly musical adapted from Roald Dahl’s ‘The Enormous Crocodile’ comes to London this summer. Uchenna Artistic Director, Vicki Igbokwe-Ozoagu, joins the team once more as choreographer.

This snaptastic musical extravaganza features a menagerie of inventive puppets, unforgettable toe-tapping tunes and mischievous audience interaction. The production plays daytime performances in the main auditorium.

The Enormous Crocodile is weaving his way through the jungle in search of delicious little fingers and squidgy podgy knees.

Only the other jungle creatures can foil his secret plans and clever tricks, but they’re going to have to find a large amount of courage to stop this greedy brute.

This new musical version of Roald Dahl’s picture book has tasty tunes by Ahmed Abdullahi Gallab and has a rib-tickling book and lyrics by Suhayla El-Bushra, and additional music and lyrics by Tom Brady. Developed and Directed by Emily Lim, it features a menagerie of mischievous puppets by co-director and puppetry designer Toby Olié, with set and costume design by Fly Davis. The jungle awaits the bravest of children!
