Adapted from Dick King-Smith’s children’s novel which inspired the Oscar-winning 1995 film, Babe The Sheep-Pig will be brought to life on stage in an enchanting new production.
Meet the lovable Babe in a heart-warming tale of friendship, adventure and bravery.
When Babe arrives at Hogget’s Farm he is taken in by the trusty sheep-dog Fly, and soon discovers a talent for herding. But can a small pig make it in a dog’s world, and when his farmyard friends are in trouble can Babe save the day?
The residents of Hogget’s Farm will be brought to life by hand-crafted puppets, created by award-winning puppet designer Max Humphries and Dik Downey, with the ensemble cast delivering masterful puppetry by puppetry director, Matthew Forbes.
Babe The Sheep-Pig will be at HMT in Aberdeen on Monday, July 17, to Wednesday, July 19, 2017. Tickets for the production are available from www.aberdeenperformingarts.com, by phone on 01224 641122 and in person from the Box Office at His Majesty’s Theatre and The Lemon Tree.
