Big Wooden Horse and Nick Brooke Limited present:
Aliens Love Underpants
Laugh your pants off with this number one bestselling children’s story, brought to life on stage for the very first time.
Hold on to your bloomers and prepare for a pant-abulous, knicker-tastic adventure.
This national bestseller and much-loved family favourite is reimagined for the stage for the very first
time, with special effects, original music, lots of aliens and many, many pants.
Created by children’s theatre company Big Wooden Horse and produced by Nick Brooke, this must-see production comes to Hertford Theatre as part of its nationwide tour.
Aliens Love Underpants tells the story of a gang of mischievous aliens on a visit to earth, travelling not to visit to the earthlings, but simply to steal their underpants!
Silly, quirky and irresistibly fun, the show follows the aliens as they ransack the washing line on their search for pants–big and small, red or green. They love Grandma’s spotted bloomers, while Grandad’s long johns make for the perfect slide!
The book, written by Claire Freedman and illustrated by Ben Cort, was selected for Richard and Judy’s Children’s Book Club with the help of pupils from schools around the UK, and has been hugely popular since it was first published in 2007.
Director Adam Bampton-Smith said, “This funny and colourful book makes a wonderful stage show, which is just right for a family audience. It’s simply pantastic!”
