‘For my lunch today I would like… a nice juicy little child!’
The ENORMOUS crocodile is weaving his way through the jungle in search of delicious little fingers and squidgy podgy knees.
Only the other jungle creatures can foil his secret plans and clever tricks, but they’re going to have to find a large amount of courage to stop this greedy brute.
This new musical version of Roald Dahl’s picture book has tasty tunes by Ahmed Abdullahi Gallab and has a rib-tickling book and lyrics by Suhayla El-Bushra, and additional music and lyrics by Tom Brady. Developed and Directed by Emily Lim, it features a menagerie of mischievous puppets by co-director and puppetry designer Toby Olié, set and costume design by Fly Davis. The jungle awaits the bravest of children!
The Enormous Crocodile musical was developed by Emily Lim, Ahmed Abdullahi Gallab, Suhayla El-Bushra, Tom Brady and Roald Dahl Story Company.
A Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, Roald Dahl Story Company and Leeds Playhouse co-production
