Growing up I was a huge fan of Wallace and Gromit, I even had a fluffy Shaun The Sheep backpack. So when I heard that there was going to be a musical version, I was intrigued to find out more.
Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels features Wallace preparing to perform his musical masterpiece My Concerto in Ee Lad with help from his faithful companion Gromit. The show will be an interactive experience featuring specially created animations. Additionally, there will be live orchestral accompaniment and escapades from the Picture House Orchestra and presenter Matthew Sharp. The show also exclusively features a screening of the all-time classic animation, The Wrong Trousers, again with live orchestral accompaniment.
The tour will run across May and June 2019 in 38 locals across the country including London, Cardiff, Birmingham and Manchester. I’m looking forward to seeing the show at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall, which has a great atmosphere for musical performances. The show hits Birmingham for May half term and there are both daytime and evening performances, making it a perfect family outing. Mini hasn’t seen any of the Wallace and Gromit animations yet, so I’m looking forward to sharing them with her in readiness for the show.
Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels is a great opportunity for little ones to experience live music in a fun and interactive way. It promises to be a show that all members of the family can enjoy together.
Last year we went to see another of Carrot Production’s performances, The Snowman so can’t wait to see the magic touches they add to Wallace and Gromit.
