About the show

Following a hugely acclaimed, sell-out season at the National Theatre, Ross Collins’ much-loved picture book comes to life once more at the West End’s New London Theatre. Magical entertainment for families of all ages, The Elephantom is the heart-warming story of friendship that comes to London for a strictly limited summer season.

Adapted from Collins’ popular children’s book, The Elephantom follows a little girl who discovers that a giant blue ghost-elephant is living in her house! Making life much more fun, the little girl quickly finds that Elephantoms are not small and can also leave a massive amount of mess in their wake! Soon, she must think of a way to get him home before he decides that her little house is the perfect place for a whole Elephantom family! A perfect opportunity for tiny theatregoers to use their imaginations, The Elephantom is the ideal summer outing!

Packed full of extraordinary puppetry that brings the big, blue elephant to life, The Elephantom guarantees laughter and spectacular theatrical effects. Casting includes Laura Cubitt, Charlotte Dubery, David Emmings, Susan Harrison, Julia Innocenti, Tim Lewis, Avye Leventis and Adam Pleeth as a musician.

Originally a hugely popular picture book by award-winning author and illustrator Ross Collins, The Elephantom has received an enchanting adaptation for the stage by Ben Power. Directed by Finn Caldwell and Toby Olie, the production features puppet design by Toby Olie, design by Samuel Wyer, lighting design by Matt Daw, sound design by Alma Kelliher and original music by Adam Pleeth. A captivating tale for children and grown-ups of all ages, this story of a little girl and her larger-than-life friend is an enthralling performance not to be missed!
