The National Theatre’s hit show The Elephantom is great fun for all the family.
Following an acclaimed and sold-out season at the National Theatre’s Shed, The Elephantom charges its way into the New London Theatre for a series of daytime performances throughout the summer.
Based on Ross Collins’ much-loved books, The Elephantom is great entertainment for young and old and uses a magical mix of puppetry, movement, dance and music to tell the story of the little girl who is unexpectedly visited by a big blue elephant.
The perfect summer treat for all the family.
The Elephantom is the tale of a little girl who one day finds a big blue elephant has turned up at her door. At first, the little girl is thrilled to have a ghost-elephant living in her house. He makes life so much more fun! But Elephantoms are a bit too big for houses and before long, he’s causing a lot of trouble. Come and join the fun with this intriguing story that fuels the imagination and touches the heart. The story of one little girl and her larger-than-life friend is set to get very messy indeed!
