Spectacle of shows are lined up for Kids Fest Manila:
A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood…Join Mouse on an adventurous journey in Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of the award winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. Mouse sets off on a daring adventure through the deep dark wood in search of hazelnuts, meeting the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl and the party mad Snake on the way. Will the story of the fabled Gruffalo save Mouse from ending up as dinner for these wily woodland creatures? Armed with only a nut map and a little courage, Mouse must outwit them all, and after all, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo – is there? Songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3 and up and their adults, in a show that’s toured around Britain and the world. Let your imagination run wild!

Aliens Love Underpants
Of every shape and size But there are no underpants in space So here's a big surprise! Aliens Love Underpants tells the story of a gang of mischievous aliens on a visit to earth, travelling not to visit earthlings, but simply to steal their underpants! Silly, quirky and irresistibly fun, the show follows the aliens as they ransack the washing line on their search for pants – big and small, red or green. The love Grandma’s spotted bloomers, while Grandad’s long johns make for the perfect slide!
The book, written by Claire Freedman and illustrated by Ben Cort, was selected for Richard and Judy’s Children’s Book Club with the help of pupils from schools around the UK, and has been hugely popular since it was first published in 2007.
This zany and hilarious tale based on the best-selling children’s book is wonderfully brought to life on stage for the very first time. With stunning effects, madcap action, original music (and lots of aliens of course!) this fantastically fresh and funny production will delight the whole family. You'll laugh your PANTS off!
