UKTW - 25 years online
CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.


Follow Owl and Pussycat as they set out on the high seas with only some honey, money and a runcible spoon to help them find their way through a topsy turvey world! Along the way they meet the piggy wig, the turkey who lives on the hill and the strangest looking tree you'll ever see!

Author Edward Lear.

Come join the Owl and Pussycat - recently engaged to be married - as they sail to the land where the Bong Tree grows (carrying a honeypot, money and other travel essentials, naturally) and where they meet new friends. But beware of the Plum Pudding Flea whose gluttonous appetite means that he will eat anyone and everyone that he can get his hands on - all except for The Runcible Spoon who can protect everyone. Throw in the Quangle Wangle, lots of Jumblies plus, of course, a surprisingly angry Pig and a be-fuddled 'reverend' Turkey, then chaos and great fun - with lots of audience participation - is bound to come your way. So join us for a feast of colour, magic and great music as once more Brentwood Theatre provides THE ideal family show this Christmas. Kindly supported by Dave Godin Lighting and Sound.Company Brentwood Theatre Company. Performer Jack Merival (Owl). Performer Sarah Rushton (Pussycat). Performer Julia Curle (The Runcible Spoon).

50 mins with no interval. Suitable for ages 3+. You probably think you know all there is to know about the owl and the pussycat and their marine adventure, but this ebullient show tells us much more. The pussycat is actually a stowaway, while the owl is running away from home to shame because he can't fly. Owl and Pussycat gleefully embark on their moonlit voyage, breaking into occasional songs and nifty little dances. Although the tiny boat is only the size of a bath tub, they play daft games of hide-and-seek and sardines in it, to the chartling delight of the audience.Company Tall Stories.
