As a family we are all big fans of Wallace and Gromit. They have such multi generational appeal and when it is increasingly difficult to find films and programmes that we all want to watch together the antics of Wallace and Gromit never fail to amuse no matter how many times we have seen them before. We were absolutely thrilled to discover that Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels was being brought to the stage by Carrot Productions. They have teamed up with award winning renowned animation studio Aardman Animations to bring a unique musical experience to Wallace and Gromit fans in venues across the UK.
So what can we expect from Wallace & Gromit’s Musical Marvels? The show features the lovable inventor Wallace preparing to perform his musical masterpiece My Concerto in Ee Lad. He is obviously helped by his faithful canine companion, Gromit. The performance will be an interactive experience with live accompaniment from the Picture House Orchestra (A group of musicians hand picked from the likes of the Halle and BBC Philamonic orchestras) There will also be a screening of the Academy Award winning The Wrong Trousers accompanied for the first time by a Live Orchestra. It sounds like it is going to be an amazing show for us all to enjoy – we can’t wait!
We have been lucky enough to be invited to see the show at the Victoria Hall in Stoke on Trent – this is only one of the 38 major venues where the production can be seen. The tour runs from the 15th May until the 9th June and full list of dates and Venues can be found on the Carrot Productions website linked here.
