CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.

Production details

Anansi's about to lose it all. He's skint, his schemes have all failed and Tacoma's about to leave him. He's finished, unless he can pull off one last trick: win the Island's Poco dance and music festival, its grand prize of ,000, and beat an international reggae/soul superstar who also has eyes on the prize (and his wife). Trouble is, Anansi's got no costume, no mas camp, no skills and no chance. Set in a fictitious island melting pot during Festival season, Anansi and the Grand Prize is a vibrant retelling of the classic folktale about our eponymous trickster hero and combines the colour, humour and dynamic dance of Africa and the Caribbean.
