The Twirlywoos are set to tread the boards for the first time in a new live tour scheduled to visit more than 30 venues across the UK.
With inventive puppetry, Twirlywoos Live! will bring the show’s beloved characters Toodloo, Great BigHoo, Chickedy, Chick and Peekaboo to life for a performance that promises to delight audiences with mischief, music and plenty of surprises as they embark on a new adventure onboard their Big Red Boat.
Tom Roe, Commercial Director, DHX Brands says: “The Twirlywoos have captured the hearts of preschoolers across the UK, and with the popularity of the brand’s TV show and toys, it was a natural next step to collaborate with a seasoned producer like MEI Theatrical to create a new stage show. Twirlywoos Live! is a wonderful extension of the Twirlywoos brand, providing children and families with yet another avenue to connect with these beloved characters and forge lasting memories.”
DHX Brands has joined forces with MEI Theatrical on the tour, which will bring the characters of the hit CBeebies pre-school show to life for little ones. MEI’s previous productions include adaptations of Sarah and Dcuk, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Fireman Sam and Thomas and Friends.
“We’re very excited to have been chosen to create a live experience with the ever-curious Twirlywoos,” says MEI Creative Producer Nick Larkin. “Silly, fun and always full of surprises, Twirlywoos Live! will enable us to engage with and entertain pre-schoolers. Watching little ones with so much excitement and wonder on their faces is part of the magic of working in children’s theatre, and we can’t wait to see the magic happen.”
The Twirlywoos Live! tour launches on 12 February 2019 in South London
