Charlie Cook's Favourite Book

25th – 27th April 2024

Charlie Cook's Favourite Book

Charlie loves reading.  Especially books about pirates.  But his sister hates it - it’s boring!  Can Charlie convince her that reading is fun?  Perhaps if she read a book about a pirate, who is reading a book about Goldilocks, who is reading a book about a knight… 

Come and delve into a range of books with Charlie Cook, brought to life with puppetry and enchanting songs, and perhaps you will be able to help his sister discover the wonderful world inside a book…

A Little Angel Theatre and Lowry Co-Production

This major new musical adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Sheffler’s ‘Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book’ will celebrate the joy of reading - from the Olivier nominated team behind “The Smartest Giant in Town”. Following a Christmas run at the Little Angel Theatre in Islington, this enchanting co-production between Little Angel Theatre and The Lowry is embarking on a nationwide tour through 2024, with accompanying literacy workshops for schools.
