Sold out


Join Beautiful Creatures Theatre for a high-flying, tightrope-walking, slightly hypnotizing adventure. A brand new, hilarious adaptation of AF Harrold’s much- loved book for children aged 6-10 featuring puppetry, magic and a lion with false teeth!

Once and once only, there was a boy whose name was Fizz.

Fizzlebert Stump lives in the travelling circus. His best friend is a sea lion, his history teacher is a magician, and every night he puts his head right inside a lion’s mouth. It sounds like a frightfully exciting place to live, don’t you think? But it’s the library, of all places, where Fizzlebert stumbles into a terrifying situation of great peril, where he finally makes a friend, and where his strange circus skills really come in handy!
