AniMalcolm has been brought to life on stage as a vibrant, energetic and gloriously funny musical from the award-winning Story Pocket Theatre.
Combining physical theatre, puppetry and the company’s outstanding storytelling style, AniMalcolm is the wonderfully comic story of Malcolm, who doesn’t much like animals whilst his family are wild about them! But on a school trip like no other, Malcolm begins to understand animals more deeply than anyone.
We cannot wait to see the musical. Read my review of AniMalcolm!
AniMalcolm will embark on a major UK Tour spanning 35 venues from February 2019, and I have a family ticket (4 tickets) to see the show at a venue of the winner’s choice!
