Theatre | Animalcolm

Saturday, March 16 & Sunday, March 17


THE AWARD-WINNING Story Pocket Theatre brings David Baddiel’s bestselling book AniMalcolm to life on stage in a new musical comedy at Worthing’s Connaught Theatre on Saturday and Sunday, March 16 and 17.


AniMalcolm combines outstanding physical performances with great music, puppetry and a gloriously funny script to create one of the biggest family theatre events of the year.


Malcolm doesn’t really like animals, which is a problem as his family are crazy about them. The house is full of pets but what Malcom really wants is a new laptop for his birthday. Instead, he gets a pet chinchilla and a ticket for the annual three-day school trip to a farm… full of animals.


During the most bizarre weekend adventure, Malcolm learns at close hand what it’s like to be an animal. He also learns that sometimes the hardest thing to become is yourself. But will he end up the same as before?


AniMalcolm is adapted by Adam Fletcher-Forde with music by David Perkins and is co-directed by Julia Black and Adam Fletcher-Forde. Designer Jackie Trousdale has worked on some of the biggest family shows in the UK including Birmingham Stage Company’s stage shows of David Walliams’s Gangtsa Granny and Awful Auntie as well as the Horrible Histories shows.


Tickets for AniMalcolm start at £15.50 and are available from the Worthing Theatres box office on 01903 206206 and online at
