About: The Incredible Book Eating Boy

At 6 min intervals between 12:30pm & 5:30pm. Audiences are advised to arrive 10 minutes before their performance slot.

Henry loved books, but not like you and I like books…he loved to EAT books. This exciting theatre adaptation of Oliver Jeffers’ award-winning children’s book by Bootworks Theatre follows the story of a boy with a voracious appetite for books. And better still, he realises the more books he eats, the smarter he gets. But a book-eating diet isn’t the healthiest of habits, as Henry soon finds out!

Come and see this unique performance in the company’s world-renowned Black Box theatre and watch Bootworks bring the pages to life! An exciting adventure for 4+ year olds, and their grown ups using live performance, puppetry and back projection. Each performance is 5 minutes long, performed for two people at a time and repeats 30 times per day.

The show is performed inside Henry’s very own bedroom providing books to read, activity packs and the chance to meet Henry’s goldfish Ginger. Each show is presented to one child and an accompanying adult, or one adult, at a time. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
