The Olivier Award-nominated production of Jacqueline Wilson’s Hetty Feather comes to Birmingham Repertory Theatre from Tuesday 8 to Saturday 12 March, following a sell-out West End season at the Duke of York’s Theatre, London.
With beautiful storytelling, spectacular circus tricks, original songs and live music, this terrific adventure story offers the perfect treat for the whole family.
Roll up and join Hetty on her escape from the foundling hospital. Tremble as she faces Matron Stinking Bottomly. Be thrilled as she discovers the squirrel house and Tanglefields Travelling Circus. Gasp as she endures a night locked in the attic. Quake as she braves the scary streets of Victorian London and cheer as she overcomes all in the search to find her real mother and a true family of her own.
Sally Cookson directs a cast including Phoebe Thomas as Hetty Feather. Joining Phoebe will be Matt Costain (Jem/Matron Bottomly), Sarah Goddard (Peg/Ida), Nik Howden (Saul), Mark Kane (Gideon) andNikki Warwick (Madame Adeline). Musicians Seamas H. Carey and Luke Potter perform live music byBenji Bower.
Hetty Feather is the first in a series of books by best-selling author Jacqueline Wilson, which includes Sapphire Battersea, Emerald Star, Diamond and Little Stars. The series has been hugely successful not just in the UK, but also internationally. It has been adapted as a new 10 part television series currently airing on CBBC.
