Date Posted: 19/04/2011

Set to tour the UK this spring through to next year, Tall Stories has produced a brand new musical production, celebrating 40 years of animated character Mr Benn.

Based on the classic character written and illustrated by David McKee, new family-friendly production Mr Benn is the story of an ordinary man who lives on an ordinary street and makes the same ordinary journey every day to his office. Until one day he stumbles across a dusty old shop overflowing with costumes, and enters an extraordinary changing room which leads him on a host of magical adventures.

Tour dates include: Lichfield’s Garrick Theatre (2nd and 3rd July); Regent Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent (22nd to 24th July); Theatre Royal, Winchester (5th and 6th August); St David’s Hall, Cardiff (8th and 9th August); and Buxton Opera House (3rd and 4th September).
