Roald Dahl’s The Enormous Crocodile to open at Leeds Playhouse

Vicki Igbokwe-Ozoagu choreographs a new musical based on Roald Dahl’s classic children’s book, The Enormous Crocodile.

This wildly exciting musical based on Roald Dahl’s wickedly funny The Enormous Crocodile will bring instantly unforgettable music, world-class puppetry and enormous fun to audiences in Leeds this winter and at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in summer 2024.

This joyful, marvellously moreish story will be brought to life with unforgettable, genre-busting music by award-winning Sudanese-American recording artist Ahmed Abdullahi Gallab and a rib-tickling book and lyrics by screen and stage-writer Suhayla El-Bushra, with additional music, lyrics, orchestrations, arrangements and music supervision by Tom Brady.

‘For my lunch today I would like… a nice juicy little child!’

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.
