A new musical for a new theatre!

Closed 29 Jul 2017

The kids are alright...right?

A brand-new musical for families is on the horizon at the recently opened The Other Palace (formerly known as St. James Theatre). Based on an 18th century cautionary tale. The Little Beasts (What Happens Tou Naughty Children) will premiere in the theatre's debut season, overseen by musical impresario Andrew Lloyd-Webber as part of his Pitch Perfect initiative. A morality tale that will resound with children, this refreshing new musical follows a selfish young girl, who upon running away after an argument with her family stumbles upon a magical menagerie filled with all manner of creatures. But what becomes apparent is that these animals are the transformed souls of naughty children.

Upon meeting the engimatic man in black, the proprietor, the girl is tasked with choosing one animal to set free, restoring the soul of the former owner. But can this girl, who has never once put somebody else's needs first, be trusted to make the kindest and selfless decision? A child-friendly, albeit slightly darker musical than we are used to, this engaging show utilises stunning puppetry and catchy, meaningful tunes. Written by Luke Bateman and Michael Conley.
