There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly.


A family show based on the nursery rhyme There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly will be performed in Taunton.

It was first written as a song in 1953 and became a chart-topping hit for Burl Ives.

It was later adapted into a best-selling book by Pam Adams.

Her version is 45 years old, and to celebrate its anniversary, it has been adapted into a musical stage show by children’s author Steven Lee.

It will feature games, colourful animal characters and heart-warming fun.

The songs will include If You’re Happy And You Know It and Incy Wincy Spider.

It has been produced by the People’s Theatre Company, which creates original musicals starring the UK’s brightest talent.

There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly will be shown at the Tacchi-Morris, in School Road, on October 6 at 12.30pm.

Tickets, priced £9-11, are available to buy on 01823 414141.
