About the Show
“I didn’t want any Grannies to explode. I just wanted a paper round.”
Charlie and the War Against the Grannies bursts on to the stage in a rampaging musical comedy for children aged 5 and up!
Written by and starring Alan Brough (Spicks and Specks), this world premiere production comes to life with shadow puppetry, live music and three really stinky farts.
All 12-year old Charlie Duncan wanted was a simple paper round. What he uncovers is a league of evil grannies plotting to set up a ‘Granny State’, where everyone will be forced to wear brown cardigans, go to bed early and there will be NO CHILDREN! The stakes are high and it’s up to Charlie and his best friend Hils to go to war with the fiendish grannies and stop them taking over the world.
Can Charlie and Hils save the day? Find out when this hilarious production full of warmth, friendship and ridiculousness lands on stage these autumn school holidays.
Non-evil grannies welcome.
