The Smartest Giant

The Smartest Giant in Town, adapted from the classic story by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, comes to The Lowry, Salford February 21–26.

The production follows on from Little Angel Theatre’s other bestselling adaptations of Donaldson’s picture books, including The Singing Mermaid and The Everywhere Bear.

George wishes he wasn’t the scruffiest giant in town. So when he sees a new shop selling giant-sized clothes, he decides it’s time for a new look: smart trousers, smart shirt, stripy tie, shiny shoes.

Running time: 55 mins (no interval). Age guide: 2–8.
