The First Hippo on the Moon comes to Milton Keynes this week

From Number One bestselling children’s author David Walliams, an explosively funny space adventure for children arrives in Milton Keynes this week...

Two big hippos. One ENORMOUS dream. Who can make it to the moon first? 3 ...2 ...1 ...BLAST OFF!

David Walliams has taken the literary world by storm and his brilliantly funny stories are adored by children the world over.

He has achieved unprecedented critical acclaim and quickly developed a reputation as a natural successor to Roald Dahl, and his books have been translated into more than 45 languages and sold over 9.5 million copies in the UK alone.

Adapted for the stage by acclaimed award winning Theatre company Les Petits and hot off the heals of their hugely successful Captain Flinn and The Pirate Dinosaurs tour and immersive hit Adventures in Wonderland, comes a fantastical adventure featuring puppetry, music, mayhem and a giant space race to the moon.

The creative team have worked on such hit shows such as Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, The Nationals’ Elephantom, Warhorse and Raymond Briggs’ The Bear.

The First Hippo on the Moon visits Stantonbury Theatre on Saturday (July 22).

The curtain rises at 2.30pm and the production is suitable for ages three years and up.
