What show are schools raving about?

There’s a theatre show touring the country that schools are raving about!

“Absolutely brilliant – it kept very close to the book and was even better in parts. Everyone was truly amazing, with brilliant characterisations. You brought the West End to Nottingham!”

Highfields School in Newark was enthusing about David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny that’s now touring through until July prior to its West End summer season. It’s your chance to for your pupils to enjoy what Viscount Beaumont’s school in Coalville called “Excellent – much funnier than the book and very clever. The children loved it!”

GANGSTA GRANNY is the most popular book by the UK’s bestselling children’s author, David Walliams. It is now an acclaimed new play suitable for pupils at infant, junior and middle school level (ages 4 to 12) and it will help you cover part of the National Curriculum.

Special school ticket prices apply at all tour venues and many give free tickets to teachers on duty. Schools can also claim back the VAT on their pupils’ tickets to reduce costs further.

“How do you entertain a thousand deafening under ten-year-olds for two hours? The answer is this cracker of a show, brilliantly adapted and directed, which comes with a smashing cast. It’s totally grantastic!” * * * *  The Mail on Sunday

It’s Friday night and Ben knows that means only one thing – staying with Granny! There will be cabbage soup, cabbage pie and cabbage cake to eat and Ben knows one thing for sure – it’s going to be so boring! But what Ben doesn’t know is that Granny has a secret – and Friday nights are about to get more exciting than he could possibly imagine, as he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime with his very own Gangsta Granny!

“Kids adore David Walliams’ books and they loved this show. It has an infectious exuberance that answers the writing’s zest and theatricality. Every comic opportunity is grasped!”  * * * * The Daily Telegraph

Gangsta Granny follows Birmingham Stage Company’s hugely popular shows including Horrible Histories, Tom’s Midnight Garden and James and the Giant Peach.

We look forward to seeing you at this amazing children’s adventure!

STOP PRESS: David Walliams writes “The BSC’s Gangsta Granny is truly brilliant, so I’m hugely excited that next they’re bringing Awful Auntie to the stage. It promises to be a thrilling show and a total hoot – Wagnar and I can’t wait to see it!” BSC’s new tour of David Walliams’ Awful Auntie starts this autumn full details at www.birminghamstage.com
