<p>Malcolm doesn’t like animals, which is a problem because his family love them, in fact, they’re wild about them. Their house is full of pets of all shapes and sizes, but what it’s <span class="caps">NOT</span> full of is stuff Malcolm likes. Such as the laptop he wanted for his birthday.</p> <p>The only bright spot on the horizon is the Year Six school trip, which Malcolm never thought his parents would pay for. And yet there he is, on the bus, heading to……a farm.</p> <p>What follows is a school trip like no other, where Malcolm begins to understand animals more deeply than anyone. But will he end up the same as before? Because sometimes the hardest thing to become is yourself.</p> <p>A vibrant, energetic and gloriously funny musical from the award-winning Story Pocket Theatre. <strong>ANiMALCOLM</strong> combines physical theatre, puppetry and the company’s outstanding storytelling style to bring David Baddiel’s magical and wonderfully comic story to the stage.</p> <p>&#8216;Funny, sometimes moving, always engaging&#8217; <strong>Guardian (on the book)</strong></p> <p>★★★★★ <em>&#8216;Full of energetic fun and excitement.
