The Story of Dr Dolittle by Stewart Auty
Running time approximately 1+ hours. A bright and breezy play adapted from the first Dr Dolittle book. Large cast of animals, of course! Plus pirates and African royalty! Dr John Dolittle is a very good…

Running time approximately 50 minutes. A humorous and lively version of the famous classic by Robert Louis Stevenson. There are lots of pirates, lots of action and even some talking goats! Young Jim Hawkins is…
The Arabian Nights by Lynn Brittney
The approximate running time of 40 minutes. The Sultan of Baghdad had a nasty habit of marrying young women and then chopping their heads off after a few days, when he found them boring! However,…
Dramatic Licence by Andrew Beattie
Approximate running time of 60 minutes. No songs. The Ministry of Performance and Entertainment has been revoking dramatic, poetic, and artistic licences all over the place. Handsome Prince to the rescue. Clever and funny. A…
Ordinary Jack by Andrew Beattie
Approximate running time of 60 minutes. No songs in this play. A wacky fairy tale (sort of) involving aubergines (too difficult to explain) a Prince, unrequited love, three witches and a wizard. Bizarre but fun….
Schlepping Beauty by Paul Cockcroft
Approximate running time of 70 minutes. 6 songs suggested. A conman, evicted by the King, gives the King’s daughter, out of revenge, a potion that turns her into a schlepper (a loser). Mm, nice… Well,…
Bah Humbug! By Jane Page
Approximate running time of 50 minutes. We all know the story of Ebenezer Scrooge – a mean and twisted, lonely old man who is visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve to make him see…
Goldie Locks On by Paul Cockcroft
Running time approximately 1 hour. More, if songs are added. Not a normal rendition of the story of Goldilocks. This is a home invasion on an epic scale because a host of unexpected characters just drop by the Bear’s house! Mayhem!
Buttons, Velcro and Zip by Stewart Auty
Running time 1 hour and 30 minutes. Cinderella updated. The Stepsisters take a lot of selfies, Buttons retires – hence Velcro and Zip , and glass slippers are a Health and Safety hazard!
Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Eggs Factory by Stewart Auty
Running time 1 hour. Terrifying noises are coming from the old Eggs Factory. Turns out it’s a talent show (Eggs Factory – geddit?) But is it a crime? Holmes must investigate.
Transylvania Dreaming by Jane Page
Running time 50 minutes. Hilarious spoof of the horror genre! Frankenstein’s Monster wakes up gagging for a decent cup of tea and his quest introduces him to a musical world of horror.
I’m in a Fairy Tale … Get Me Out of Here! by Paul Cockcroft
Running time approx. 50 mins. The ultimate unreality show! Characters from the world of Fairy Tales battle it out in an undisclosed location for a chance to revive their flagging careers. Brutal!
Puss in Boots by Lynn Brittney
Running time approx. 50 mins. A super smart talking cat, a militant vegetarian princess, an ogre who is visited by OFSTED…why it must be Puss In Boots! (You may not be familiar with our version).
The Princess Frog by Lynn Brittney
Running time approx. 60mins. What if you were told you had to marry a frog? Prince Ivan has a terrible problem but then he discovers that his bride is not what she seems. (Ooh…do tell!)
Disorder In Court by Stewart Auty
Running time approx 60 mins. You won’t believe this…Golidlocks is in Court charged with breaking and entering. The Judge is nuts, the witnesses are dodgy and the Three Bears are running an insurance scam!
Disorder in Court the Sequel by Stewart Auty
Running time approx. 60 mins. Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the courtroom, along comes another court case of fantabulous Fairy Tale characters! Crazy capers, of course.
Who Invented Christmas? By Lynn Brittney
Running time approx.35 mins. Welcome to a 21st Century Christmas! No conversation, just each family member in their own tech bubble. But a documentary film crew are about to change all that…
Snow White and the Eight Dwarfs by Stewart Auty
Running time approx. 60 mins. Yes, there’s one extra dwarf and a few other characters that aren’t in the original story. (We like to think we improve on the original, most of the time).
The Princess and the Pea by Lynn Brittney
Running time approx. 35 mins. The Prince needs to get married! But, unfortunately, there are no suitable Princesses (curse, anyone?), so a commoner is going to have to step up to the plate.
The Nut and Pear Job by Janet Hodge
Running time approx. 60mins. A good old-fashioned pantomime with a Dame, a villain, hopeless policemen, a Princess, and lots of other things! You know that tree that bears a silver nutmeg and a golden pear?…
