Brought to you by the Olivier-nominated team behind The Gruffalo, Wilde Creatures is a sparkling new musical adventure for everyone aged 5 to 105.
What Is Wilde Creatures About?
Let the Wilde Creatures take you on a fantastical journey through palaces, forests and beyond in this exciting new adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s classic fairy tales.
A live band of storytelling musicians bring characters from ‘The Happy Prince’, ‘The Nightingale and the Rose’ and ‘The Birthday of the Infanta’ to life, as they try to choose a new statue for the town square. Will it be the pompous Mayor, the haughty Princess or the love-sick Student?
Hauntingly beautiful tales with original live music, imaginative storytelling and a generous dash of comedy.

Wilde Creatures reviews
It was great fun from beginning to end. It appeals to young and not-so-young alike. At the show I went to there were many adults who had gone without children and they were clearly enjoying themselves just as much as the children in the audience. A great time.
A very enjoyable performance for all the family. Very much enjoyed the performance and the low tech and inventive use of props and scenery. The Actors were very entertaining and engaging. Some narration at start slightly drawn out but superb built up from there until the nice ending.
Loved it! I was with my 11yr old son and he enjoyed it
We loved Wilde creatures, inventive set and clever use of props. Catchy songs and music, we loved that the actors were also musicians. A thoroughly enjoyable story telling experience. A very talented group of performers.
An excellent show. Just right for Christmas Eve.
The show was absolutely great and not only did I enjoy it, my two girls loved it as well. Aged 7 & 11. The music was brilliant along with the acting. Would definitely recommend it to all and great value for money.
Beautiful little theatre, Energetic and talented cast. Inventive set. The children were all absorbed as the stories were acted out and silent until asked to vote when an amazingly vociferous noise emerged each time! Just the right length as well.
well worth seeing and heart warming ending. good acting and a charming surprise for viewers at the end.
Our 7& 8 year olds thoroughly enjoyed this show, as did we. Lively, funny, moving. A lovely start to the Christmas holidays.
Definitely worth seeing - the most thoughtful and fun show all year
Excellent production - very engaging and fun for the young ones, while also being thought-provoking for the adults. The overall production was quite short (1hr) but I was happy with that as I had acquired the tickets at half price on a promotion - I would probably have felt a little short-changed had I paid full price. The seeds at the end was a lovely touch and my daughter has been singing the 'theme tune' ever since!
We loved the story. it is well acted, fun and dynamic, without any drops in rhythm. I really recommend it.
Great play. What an excellent production. A must see for adults even.
Short and sweet, manages to make the rather melancholy nature of Oscar Wilde's fairy stories palatable for children. The music was great and the cast had good interaction with the audience. We all loved being given wild flower seeds to take the magic home. A little piece of deliciousness.
Was at the performance with a Japanese friend who is wild about everything Oscar Wilde, and she perhaps knows every play he wrote. She could identify all the characters played on stage by the four actors and thoroughly enjoyed it. Me? Yes, I am a more passing Wilde fan, but loved how his short, children's stories were presented. I had forgotten about the nightingale and rose story - did feel some tear coming up. Very, very well done.
