St Martins Theatre
The Smartest Giant in Town
Based on the bestselling book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
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. Now he’s the smartest giant in town ... until he bumps into some animals who desperately need his help – and his clothes!
This heart-warming tale about friendship and helping those in need is brought to life in a musical, puppet-filled adventure. Little Angel Theatre’s previous bestselling adaptations of Julia Donaldson’s picture books include The Singing Mermaid and The Everywhere Bear.
