About the show

After a tremendously successful UK tour, a colourful, riotous stage adaptation of What the Ladybird Heard flies in to the West End, directed by Graham Hubbard. Opening for a summer season at the Lyric Theatre, What the Ladybird heard is the beloved children’s story, adapted from the popular book by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks.

An enchanting story about friendship and believing in yourself, What the Ladybird Heard tells the tale of a tiny ladybird with big ideas! When naughty robbers Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len decide to sneakily steal the farmer’s best prize cow, the little ladybird comes up with a crafty way to thwart their plans…

Join the ladybird and a whole farmyard of fluffy friends, including the woolly sheep, hairy hog, fat red hen and dainty dog as they come together to expose the robbers! Packed full of magical music, mesmerising puppetry and plenty of audience participation to keep the whole family involved, What the Ladybird Heard is the perfect summer treat!

Directed by Graham Hubbard, What the Ladybird Heard features design by Bek Palmer, lighting design by Ric Mountjoy and original music and sound design by Jon Fiber and Andy Shaw for JollyGoodTunes.

Guaranteed to be a hilarious, engaging outing for tiny theatregoers, What the Ladybird Heard plays until the 10th September 2017.
