THE HUNTING OF THE SNARK is a musical comedy adventure story for the whole family, based on Lewis Carroll’s poem about catching a mythical creature called the Snark (Lewis Carroll is the author of classic books Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass). The tale centres around a motley bunch of high-energy characters, both actors and a puppet, as they set out on a fun-filled quest to find the Snark. The show is packed with catchy, witty, upbeat songs by award-winning composer  Gareth Cooper – plenty of ‘tunes to tap your toes to’.  Produced by RGM Productions, THE HUNTING OF THE SNARK has received rave reviews from its highly successful season at Cardiff’s Sherman Theatre and Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

THE HUNTING OF THE SNARK premiers in Hong Kong on the 20th September.

At its heart, THE HUNTING OF THE SNARK is a touching father-and-son story about a journey of discovery and reconciliation. A young boy, teaches his father about life’s true riches: love, family and friendship. Some believe that the poem is a satire on capitalism and the quest for wealth, while others may conclude it to be an allegory on the search for happiness. Let us know what you think after the show!

With lashings of daft humour, a striking set design, fabulous costumes and award-winning soundtrack, this musical is sure to wow kids as well as adults. Tickets are on sale now, so bring your kids and make this a fun family outing. See below for details.
