Rehearsal images have been released for the upcoming socially-distanced live production at Greenwich Theatre, The Wolves of Willoughby Chase. Bringing some festive fun to South London, this thrilling adaptation promises to be a winter adventure the family won’t forget, packed full of unforgettable characters, snowy wastelands and ferocious wolves!
The Wolves of Willoughby Chase tells the story of two brave and determined girls as they encounter unforgettable characters, take on ferocious wolves and battle through snowy wastelands. Bonnie, Sylvia, and their friend Simon the Goose-boy soon realise that the wolves roaming the forests outside may not be as dangerous as the wolfish adults plotting inside.
Directed by Artistic Director, James Haddrell, with magical musical compositions by David Haller (Puss in Boots, Belgrade Theatre), the perfect way to celebrate the festive season this year is with Greenwich Theatre. Greenwich’s favourite pantomime villain Anthony Spargo (Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain Part One and Two, Garrick Theatre; co-writer of Olivier nominated Alice’s Adventures Underground for Les Enfants Terribles) will return to the theatre as Miss Slighcarp. He will appear alongside Alice De-Warrenne, Cassandra Hercules, Akshay Khanna, Serin Ibrahim and Reice Weathers (The Upstart Crow, Gielgud Theatre).
Alongside the live performance, Greenwich are also offering audience members the opportunity to join the cast in an online challenge to help Bonnie and Sylvia on an epic venture through their wintry world. Sir Willoughby’s Challenge is a brand new theatrical experience for brave and intrepid adventurers aged 6 to 12.
The Wolves of Willoughby Chase will run at the Greenwich Theatre from Friday 18 December 2020 to Sunday 10 January 2021.
