“As far as eye-poppingly perfect productions are concerned, Sherman Cymru's summer show The Hunting of the Snark tics all the boxes - and some that possibly haven't been invented yet... The Hunting of the Snark is a sure-fire sunny delight. Go bring some sunshine into your life.”
★★★★★ Wales Online
The impossible voyage of an improbable crew to hunt an imaginary creature is brought magically to life in this sparkling musical comedy adventure for 4 to 94 year olds.
Enter the imaginative world of Alice in Wonderland creator, Lewis Carroll, in this brand new, highly original, ultra-modern adaptation inspired by his beloved classic poem.
This show features five high-energy actors, a life-like puppet, fantastical characters, and lashings
of daft humour.
A riotous ragtag gang of bold adventurers including the Banker, the Boy, the Butcher, the Baker, the Bellman and the knitting Beaver set off on a quest to catch the mythical Snark… on the journey they encounter the Jub Jub bird, the sly Bandersnatch and the dastardly Boojum… Can a Snark be caught with soap? Will the Beaver escape the hungry Butcher’s clutches? Will the Baker remember his name? Does anyone know what a Snark actually looks like?
Side-splittingly funny, joyful, fast-paced and bursting with an
award-winning soundtrack of witty and memorable songs, The Hunting of the Snark will delight, excite and entertain.
