The Roald Dahl Story Company, Leeds Playhouse and Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre have today revealed joyous new production ‘snaps’ of their marvellously moreish musical extravaganza, The Enormous Crocodile.

Featuring a menagerie of puppets, toe-tapping tunes and mischievous audience interaction, The Enormous Crocodile is currently entertaining brave young audiences in the Courtyard theatre at Leeds Playhouse until 6 January.

The company includes: Elliotte Williams-N'Dure (she/her) (Ursula, Unfortunate: The Untold Story of Ursula the Sea Witch) as the hungry Crocodile searching for a delicious child to snap up for dinner; Charis Alexandra (she/her) (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, West End) as Trunky the Elephant; Lawrence Hodgson-Mullings (he/him) (Dick Whittington, National Theatre) as Humpy Rumpy the Hippopotamus; Philippa Hogg (she/her) (Peter Pan, National Theatre Productions) as the Roly Poly Bird; and Robyn Sinclair (she/they) (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Watermill Ensemble) as Muggle Wump the Monkey.

The Enormous Crocodile is running alongside Oliver! as part of Leeds Playhouse's fun festive offer for families before transferring to Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre for their 2024 summer season. The production is part of a new slate of theatrical work from the Roald Dahl Story Company, which also includes a major new musical of The Witches at the National Theatre.
