PUBLISHED: 09:33 09 June 2011
A MASTERPIECE of children's entertainment - David Walliams' Mr Stink will take to the stage in Bristol next month.
It will appear for the first time live as a musical adaptation of the comedian’s award-winning novel.
Mr Stink has been on a national tour since last month and will stop off at The Bristol Hippodrome from July 6-10.
David Walliams, star of Little Britain and Come Fly with Me, has written the smelliest book of all time breaking new ground by being the first ever interactive scratch ‘n’ sniff family show.
Each audience member will be given a free scratch ‘n’ sniff booklet bringing Mr Stink ‘pongingly’ to life.
Adapted and directed by Matthew White (director of the recent West End productions of Sweet Charity and Little Shop of Horrors and the forthcoming production of Top Hat), with music composed by Matt Brind, (musical director for Legally Blonde and conductor and orchestrator for John Barrowman’s latest album).
Chloe does not like school very much. She is not as cool as the other kids, no iPhone, no DS and no friends.
Then she meets Mr Stink – the local tramp.
Yes, he smells a bit, but he is the only person who has ever been nice to her, including her mother who wants to be the local MP and is trying to rid the streets of its homeless.
About to lose her only friend, Chloe finds Mr Stink a secret hiding place - but is there more to him than meets the nose?
Mr Stink is a musical comedy with enchanting puppetry suitable for children aged over seven and their families.
The Mercury has teamed up with The Bristol Hippodrome to offer two lucky readers the chance to win a family ticket to the show at 7pm on July 6.
