The Hunting of the Snark at the Vaudeville Theatre.

Enter the imaginative world of Alice in Wonderland creator, Lewis Carroll, in this new adaptation inspired by his much loved classic poem.

Featuring five-high energy actors, life-like puppets, fantastical characters, and lashings of daft humour, The Hunting of the Snark is brought magically to life in this sparkling musical comedy adventure for 4 to 94 year olds.

The Hunting of the Snark runs from 26 July 2017 until 2 September 2017 at the Vaudeville Theatre.


All aboard! The ship is departing! All children, animals and silly people welcome!

A riotous ragtag gang of bold adventurers including the Boy, the Banker, the Butcher, the Baker, the Bellman and the knitting Beaver set off on an improbable voyage to catch the mythical Snark…

Onn the journey they encounter the Jub Jub bird, the sly Bandersnatch and the dastardly Boojum…

Can a Snark be caught with soap? Will the Beaver escape the hungry Butcher’s clutches? Will the Baker remember his name? Does anyone know what a Snark actually looks like?

Side-splittingly funny, joyful, fast-paced and bursting with a soundtrack of witty songs by an award-winning songwriter, The Hunting of the Snark is a tour de force that‘ll delight, excite and entertain.


★★★★★ ‘captivating and emotionally varied’ Plays To See
