About the showBased on the popular children’s book by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort and brought to life on stage for the very first time by Adam Bampton-Smith, Alien’s Love Underpants mixes puppetry, effects, and original music to create a show that will delight the whole family.
Aliens love underpants…but unfortunately there aren’t any in space…This hilarious production tells the story of Timmy who dreams of becoming a spaceman and whose dream comes true when he gets the opportunity to journey to the planet Janet where underpants are worshiped.
The show stars Abigail Carter-Simpson, Eve Pearson-Wright, Alex James Ellison and Mark Collier. The production features set and costume designs by Isla Shaw and choreography by Emma Clayton.
There is never a dull moment in this brilliant show designed to keep young audiences engaged throughout. Like the bestselling book, the show uses rhyme to engage children and encourage them to join in. Expect high energy singing and dancing and lots and lots of silliness. You’re guaranteed to laugh your pants off!
