The Swashbuckling Musical Adventure

Pippi Longstocking, “the strongest girl in the world”, is a new spectacular musical that will burst onto our stage this summer.

Nine-year-old Pippi is strong, brave and fearless. When she comes to live in her new home with her monkey and horse but with no parents and no rules, she brings mischief, chaos and confusion to the folk of this ordinary town. Pippi takes charge of her own crazy adventures, with her two new friends, Tommy and Annika.

What else would you expect from the daughter of a swashbuckling pirate captain?

Adapted by Mike Akers (Peter Pan) and composed by Stu Barker, whose West End and Broadway credits with Kneehigh Theatre Company include Brief Encounter and The Red Shoes, this joyful production will be directed by The Wardrobe Ensemble’s Jesse Jones and Helena Middleton.

“I was really fascinated with this strong little girl that was the center of everything, and she was almost magical in a way. She was stronger and tougher than anyone. She had super-human strength, and I got a kick out of her.” Michelle Obama
