Babes in the Magic Wood - A Musical Play

Large Mixed Cast

David Wood Price: $14.99

The British master of children's theatre has adapted this enchanting fairytale into a lively stage adventure with charming, original songs

Babes In The Magic Wood has an original storyline, and does not resemble the usual pantomime versions ...

Widow Crockett and her babes, Simple Simon and Contrary Mary, run a toyshop - their biggest job being the making of toys for Father Christmas’s order

One Christmas Eve they are very behind with their work and wish their Fairy Godmother could help

She appears and, under her spell, three magic toys - Jack-in-the-Box, Ragdoll and Clockwork Panda - finish the job while the Crockett family are asleep

Later the rascally robbers Pick and Nick see a chance, impersonating Father Christmas, to grab the toys for themselves

They are foiled, but much more perilous dangers follow ...


“A fantastic confection of charm, wit and musical fun” ~ Romford Observer

“It’s got just about the lot … ” ~ Wythenshawe World

“Storywise it contains the author’s inventiveness ... hilarious ... the youngsters in the audience love the three life-size toys which come alive – Jack-in-the-Box, the Ragdoll and, best of all, a very cuddly Panda” ~ The Stage
