The Hundred And One Dalmatians

Start date: November 30, 2017

End date: January 13, 2018

Location: Birmingham Repertory Theatre

101 DalmatiansBy Dodie Smith
Adapted for the stage by Debbie Isitt
Birmingham Repertory Theatre | 30 November – 13 January

Dalmatians Pongo and Missis enjoy an idyllic life with their humans, Mr and Mrs Dearly. Then one day, the house is filled with the patter of tiny paws when Missis gives birth to a litter of adorable puppies. But just as the Dearlys get used to their new housemates, the puppies mysteriously vanish.

With the help of the canine community and an Old English Sheepdog, Pongo and Missis set out on an adventure to find the missing puppies. Their quest leads them to the vicious Cruella de Vil. She hates dogs but loves fur coats and has set her sights on a certain black and white spotty pattern. Will the animals be able to get home safely in time for Christmas?

Dodie Smith’s delightful tale is the perfect festive treat and has been brilliantly transformed for the stage by Debbie Isitt, the writer and director of the hugely popular Nativity! films. Tessa Walker returns to direct another family favourite following her record-breaking 2015 production, The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe. You know the book and film, now experience the magical story live on stage.

All performances of The Hundred And One Dalmatians will be Captioned and Audio Described.

In a new musical version for the whole family developed by Andrew Barry, Matt Borgatti, Will Dollard and Mary Erskine

Book by Matt Borgatti
Music and lyrics by Will Dollard and Mary Erskine
Directed by Andrew Barry

When Maria and her family turn up at a dusty old toyshop on Christmas Eve, full of raggedy old toys and a mysterious toymaker, they’d rather be anywhere else. But all is not as it seems- when everyone goes to bed the toys in the shop burst into life with music, singing and dancing. Maria meets the Nutcracker, a toy who has been cursed by the evil Mouse King. Together they must find a way to lift the curse and save Christmas for everyone.

The world of the Nutcracker and the Mouse king is vividly brought to life with new songs and music, performed live by actor musicians supported by a talented young company ensemble from the local community.
