World Premier! David Walliam’s MR STINK comes to Kingston Upon Thames

World Premier! David Walliam's MR STINK comes to the Rose


Tuesday 26 – Sunday 31 July


A musical comedy based on the hilarious children's novel written by David Walliams and illustrated by Quentin Blake


Mr Stink stank. He also stunk.

And if it is correct English to say he stinked,

then he stinked as well.


KW & NB Ltd and Curve, Leicester with Hackney Empire and Nottingham Playhouse proudly present for the first time live on stage, a musical adaptation of David Walliams' award-winning novel for children, Mr Stink


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 everinteractive 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 Endproductions 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).


David Walliams, who's not in the show, really wants you to come and see it!


Chloe doesn't like school very much. She isn't 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's the only person who's 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 Stinka secret hiding place…but is there more to him than meets the nose?


A musical comedy with enchanting puppetry suitable for children aged 7+ and their families. Mr Stink also lends itself perfectly to schools audiences. Ideal for key stage 2-3 PSHE – Education Pack available on request.


Running time of 2 hrs 10 minutes including an interval.
