101 Dalmatians

    About

    Some dogs look like their owners, or is it that some owners look like their dogs? And who really owns who – do dogs secretly think that we’re their pets?

    Mr and Mrs Dearly love dogs, especially their two dalmatians, Pongo and Perdita. Cruella De Vil loves fur and doesn’t have much time for anything living. When Pongo and Perdita’s fifteen new-born dalmatian puppies go missing it doesn’t take a genius to work out who has kidnapped them – and now the clock is ticking before they’re gone forever.

    Based on Dodie Smith’s much loved book The Hundred and One Dalmatians, in a collaboration between Tobacco Factory Theatres and Travelling Light. 101 Dalmatians is warm-hearted and playful, told with creative storytelling, original live music by Benji Bower and a lot of laughs.

    From the inventive and nationally renowned director Sally Cookson and the team that brought you the Olivier Award-nominated and Off West End Award-winner Cinderella: A Fairytale, as they take you on a canine caper to find the missing dalmatians and deal with the dastardly De Vil once and for all!

    A Joyus celebration of bottom sniffing, bovine co-operation and canine heroics. It made my tail wag
