Tom Thumb

Tom Thumb

Details

A show by Marcello Chiarenza from Lyngo Theatre Company
Adapted and performed by Patrick Lynch
Original music by Carlo Cialdo Capelli

A wee wonder of a show showing how small can be mighty!

One night tiny Tom overhears Mum and Dad talking - there's nothing left to eat so they are going to leave him and his six brothers in the forest.

Outwitting his parents and the ogre Tom shows everybody that even though he is small he is still mighty as he protects his brothers, finds the treasure and makes sure they'll never be hungry again.

Performed entirely on and under a kitchen table this inventive production is full of Lyngo magic, with feathery spinning birds, a flying house and a portable forest. CBeebies’ Patrick Lynch brings this classic story to life in a playful and fascinating performance.

Suitable for all ages from 3+
