A classic children’s story, Burglar Bill, comes to The Lights on Saturday, 28 January at 11am – perfect for a half term treat!
Burglar Bill is brought gleefully to life in a fun and engaging stage show of Janet and Allen Ahlberg’s classic picture book. With trademark flair and ingenuity, premier children’s theatre company, The Pied Piper Theatre Company, has created a show guaranteed to delight and entertain children and their families.
Young theatre-goers will join Burglar Betty as she tells them of the night Burglar Bill saw a large cardboard box with holes in the sides and thought, “that’s a nice cardboard box with holes in the side, I’ll have that,” only to discover he’d stolen a great deal more than he’d bargained for. A clever and imaginative set provides lots of fun and laughter as Burglar Bill and Burglar Betty climb in and out of its many windows. In addition there are puppets and original music plus song and dance to make for a truly joyful and involving theatre experience, which perfectly captures the spirit of the book.
Janet and Allen Ahlberg’s Burglar Bill has delighted families for nearly forty years and children (aged 3+), their parents and grandparents will love Burglar Bill the stage show.
As Burglar Bill would say, “That’s a nice theatre ticket – I’ll have that!”
