Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes has been entertaining audiences young and old for generations. The Everyman brought together a narrator with some of the finest musicians in the country creating a highly entertaining double–bill of two favourites: Little Red Riding Hood and the Three Little Pigs. 

A great introduction to the instruments of the orchestra, Dahl’s naughty, mischievous humour was brought to life in this adaptation by the celebrated composer Paul Patterson – a musical setting with a narrator and an 11–piece orchestra with conductor – that blew the house down!
