Kids set for monster-ously good time in new book adaptation
Watch out and take cover, there are monsters on the loose and heading for Lichfield in Staffordshire. In fact, monster-ously good fun is roaring its way to the Lichfield Garrick theatre on Saturday 30 June with Monstersaurus, the stage adaptation of the best-loved children's book. This brand new production, which comes from the creators of Aliens Love Underpants, follows young inventor Monty as he creates a whole world of wacky inventions and incredible monsters. But now he has made them, how is he going to get rid of them all?

Monstersaurus promises to be an energetic show full of thrills, spills, magic and mayhem that will delight the whole family. There is original music and lots of audience participation with plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved! Director Adam Bampton-Smith said: "This is a wonderful show for young ones and there's also lots to keep the grown-ups entertained! The reaction of children all over the country to monsters has been fantastic because it really brings the book straight to life right in front of their eyes."
