Riverside presents
Adapted for the stage by Spare Parts Puppet Theatre

A gloriumptious school holiday experience.

How do you outwit a Twit? Mr and Mrs Twit are the smelliest, ugliest people in the world. They hate everything — except playing mean jokes on each other, catching innocent birds to put in their Bird Pies, and making their caged monkeys, the Muggle-Wumps, stand on their heads all day. But fate changes for the Muggle-Wump with the arrival of the gracious and glorious bird, Roly-Poly.

A comedy of rebellion and justice, Roald Dahl’s beloved tale comes to life on stage in this high energy combination of storytelling, puppetry and physical theatre that will Dahl-ight ages 5+ and their families.
