This Christmas, take the family on a socially-distanced adventure to see The Wolves of Willoughby Chase at Greenwich Theatre, or try the interactive Sir Willoughby’s Challenge instead…
Greenwich Theatre will reopen on Friday 18th December with Russ Tunney’s thrilling festive adaptation of Joan Aiken’s classic children’s novel, The Wolves of Willoughby Chase.
The classic tale tells the story of two brave and determined girls as they encounter unforgettable characters, take on ferocious wolves and battle through snowy wastelands. Bonnie, Sylvia, and their friend Simon the Goose-boy soon realise that the wolves roaming the forests outside may not be as dangerous as the wolfish adults plotting inside.
Alongside the live performance, Greenwich Theatre are also offering you the opportunity to join the cast in an online challenge. Help Bonnie and Sylvia on an epic venture through their wintry world. Sir Willoughby’s Challenge is a brand new theatrical experience for brave and intrepid adventurers aged 6 to 12 years.
The Wolves of Willoughby Chase is directed by James Haddrell, with magical musical compositions by David Haller (Puss in Boots, Belgrade Theatre. Greenwich Theatre’s favourite pantomime villain Anthony Spargo (Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain Part One and Two, Garrick Theatre) will return to the theatre as Miss Slighcarp. He will appear alongside Alice De-Warrenne, Cassandra Hercules, Akshay Khanna, Serin Ibrahim and Reice Weathers.
