    About The Smartest Giant in Town Musical

    George doesn’t want to be the scruffiest giant in town anymore, so he buys himself a brand-new outfit. His smart trousers, smart shirt, smart stripy tie and shoes so shiny you can see your face in them mean he’s now, without a doubt, the smartest giant in town! But when he bumps into a group of animals who need his help, he might have to give them the clothes off his back!

    Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's picture book is adapted into an engaging musical featuring bright sets, puppets and songs, perfect for pre-school aged children and those up to eight, who are showing an interest in live performance. This is the perfect thing to watch if your little ones love the bright colours, engaging stories and songs in television shows like Peppa Pig or The Gruffalo.

    The Smartest Giant in Town Creative Team

    The Smartest Giant in Town musical is adapted by the acclaimed children’s theatre company Little Angel Theatre, who have also brought Donaldson and Scheffler’s The Singing Mermaid to the stage.

    Their acclaimed adaptation of Gruffalo and Room on the Broom scribe Julia Donaldson’s story first opened at Little Angel’s own theatre space, and was applauded by critics and parents for its catchy songs and engaging expansion of the book. If your kids ever wanted to see George’s shopping spree in full when you read The Smartest Giant in Town with them, now is your chance! Even better are the fantastic puppets which bring all the animals to the stage, including a giraffe.

    This delightful show has, like all good children’s theatre, “a lovely sense of its own absurdity” (Time Out) and, put simply, “a joy” (The Evening Standard).
