From Number One bestselling picture book authors, David Walliams and Tony Ross, comes this explosively funny space adventure for the whole family.

Two big hippos.
One ENORMOUS dream.
Who can make it to the moon first?

Brought to life on stage by "Les Petits", the highly acclaimed Theatre company responsible for "Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs". This production will be full of colour and spectacle with creative input from David Walliams himself.

The show premieres in Eastbourne this Christmas before its UK Tour and West End run later in Summer 2017. It promises to be an amazing adventure and is one not to be missed in its premiere run.

*The Production is one hour in length with no interval and so ideal for pre-schoolers as well as any David Walliams book lover.

* David Walliams does not actually appear in the production
