Crocodile cries river of tears

A BLEND of acting and puppetry brings a much-loved children’s story to life at the Kenton Theatre next month.

A BLEND of acting and puppetry brings a much-loved children’s story to life at the Kenton Theatre next month.

Most young children will know The Selfish Crocodile, a best-selling picture book by Faustin Charles and Michael Terry. The story is about Mr Crocodile, who lives deep in the forest by the banks of a great river. But he is very selfish and won’t share the river with any of the other animals. He thinks it is his river, so the other animals stay away.

Then one day, they hear a terrible scream and think he has eaten someone. In fact, the scream comes from Mr Crocodile, who has toothache and is crying real tears. No one dares help him — they just stand and stare — until a brave little mouse thinks of a clever way to solve the snappy dilemma.

The stage show, which comes to the Kenton in time for half term on Monday, February 11, is presented by Blunderbus Theatre Company, a professional touring company. The story is brought to life using song, music and puppets, and is aimed at children aged three to seven years old.

Tickets for the show are available from the box office on (01491) 575698 or visit www.kentontheatre.co.uk
