More Information on The First Hippo On The Moon

Based on David Walliams’ original children’s book with illustrations by Tony Ross, The First Hippo on the Moon is an explosively funny space adventure which sees the enormously rich Hercules Waldorf-Franklin III and ingenious Shelia compete to be the first hippo to make it to the moon.

David Walliams said: “I am delighted that The First Hippo on the Moon will be making its world premiere this December at the historic Eastbourne Hippodrome before travelling up and down the UK. I've been a long-time admirer of Les Petits Theatre Company and the innovative approach they take to theatre-making so I'm excited to see how they bring my hippo space explorers to life on stage.”

Les Petits Theatre Company said: “Les Petits Theatre Company are excited to be bringing David Walliams' space race adventure to life for young audiences with our trademark mixture of larger than life puppets, fun, live music and adventure. We are delighted to be premiering the first stage adaption of David Walliams' picture books for young readers, and to be working with an author who we have long admired for his boundless imagination and great sense of fun.”

Suitable for ages 3+
