The Lorax

Long before “going green” was mainstream, The Lorax spoke for the trees and warned of the dangers of disrespecting the environment. The powerful message of THE LORAX has enlightened generations about the importance of seeing the beauty in the world around us and our responsibility to protect it. 

This classic story has been brilliantly adapted for the stage by David Greig, with music and lyrics by Charlie Fink, and directed by Max Webster, in a dazzling new show direct from London’s acclaimed Old Vic theatre. This funny, moving, and inspiring show that The Independent calls “terrifically inventive”, is a riot of eye-popping colour, gorgeous puppetry and infectious original music. You won’t want to miss it!
