The First Hippo On The Moon comes to Singapore for the first time ever! This absolute delight of a theatre show from the book by David Walliams is a colourful fantastical space adventure for children from 3 years old and up.
David Walliams, a UK Number One bestselling children’s author has been called the new Roald Dahl. His books have been translated into over 45 languages and sold over 11 million books around the world.
The First Hippo On The Moon is a tale of two big hippos: the impossibly named, incredibly rich Hercules Waldorf-Franklin III and the ingenious Sheila. Both compete to fulfill their dream of being the first hippo to make it to the moon. But who will it be? A giant space race to the moon ensues.
With a UK cast, costumes and puppetry that are works of art, and plenty of music and mayhem, this show has so much to enchant kids and parents alike. There are powerful themes of aspiration and team work through out the story, encouraging kids to dream big, just like Sheila the hippo.
The First Hippo On The Moon has been adapted for the stage by acclaimed award winning UK theatre company Les Petits who has worked on hit shows like Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax and Warhorse. The show has toured all over UK since November 2016 (including Edinburgh Festival Fringe to glowing reviews) and now it is Singapore’s turn to experience the magic of David Walliams.
