Shaun’s Big Show in town

FANS will be flocking to the Devonshire Park Theatre from March 4-6 when Shaun the Sheep makes his stage debut in a new live production, Shaun’s Big Show.

Shaun has decided to put on a very special show for all his friends; there’ll be some madcap mayhem ahead as they dance and prance their way through a series of adventures under the nose of the short-sighted Farmer. 

Aardman’s television series, Shaun the Sheep first appeared on BBC1 and CBBC in March 2007.

Inspired by Nick Park’s 1995 Academy Award-winning short film, A Close Shave, the series has been sold worldwide.  

All the favourite characters from the hit series feature in this wholly live show, including Bitzer, Shirley, Timmy and the rest of the flock in this fully choreographed music and dance extravaganza. 

This particular production marks David’s first screened animation adaptation, adopting the premise of the televised series - being performed entirely without spoken narrative. 

The main storyline features the Flock accidentally discovering the joys of dance, and Shaun being inspired, in true Mickey Rooney style, to put on his own show in the barn.

The inspiration is provided by none other than the Farmer, who has been watching episodes of Strictly Come Dancing and decides to teach himself how to tango.

Tickets cost £12.50-£13.50m call 412000.
