Review: The Enormous Crocodile at Leeds Playhouse

Leeds Playhouse’s production of ‘The Enormous Crocodile’ delivered a spectacular theatrical experience that captivated audiences of all ages.

My six-year-old son and I were enthralled from start to finish, immersed in a world of fantastic scenarios, enchanting singing, and a highly engaging storyline. The play showcased the perfect blend of creativity and skill, bringing Roald Dahl’s classic tale to life with a delightful energy that resonated throughout the entire venue.

The performers exhibited exceptional talent, seamlessly transitioning between characters and captivating the audience with their expressive singing. The production’s attention to detail in set design and costumes added an extra layer of magic, enhancing the overall visual appeal.

As a parent, witnessing my son’s genuine joy and excitement throughout the performance was heartwarming.

Leeds Playhouse’s ‘The Enormous Crocodile’ is a must-see for families seeking a delightful and memorable theatrical experience.

The Enormous Crocodile runs at Leeds Playhouse until Saturday 6 January 2024.  Full details and tickets at:
