About: The Famous Five

Following the huge success of Stig of the Dump last year, the Tabard Theatre is delighted to announce its production of a brand new musical adaptation of the literary classic series The Famous Five, to play at the Chiswick venue this Christmas.

Enid Blyton is without doubt one of the most successful children’s storytellers of all time and the Famous Five’ series arguably her best works. The continued popularity of the books is testament to her timeless appeal.

With lashings of ginger beer and ham sandwiches, the five go on an adventure through lost caves, Kirrin island, sunken ships and abandoned treasure. A company of six actors will recreate Julian, Dick, Ann, George and of course Timmy the dog in a magical fantastical world far away.

Enid Blyton wrote 21 Famous Five novels and 2 million copies of the books are sold each year. She is consistently voted as the best loved author of all time and is the fifth most translated author in the world.

The same creative team that brought Stig of the Dump to the stage return with Richard Williams (former artistic director of the Unicorn Theatre) adapting and Leon Parris (Wolfboy, Scary Musical) composing. West End director Russell Labey (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Sunset Boulevard, New Boy) also returns to the helm.

The Famous Five is an enchanting and magical adventure and will make your Christmas theatre going experience truly a night to remember.
