THE LAWRENCE Batley Theatre is set to thrill Christmas audiences this month with an exciting adaptation of The Boy Who Cried Wolf.

The new stage version of Aesop’s much loved tale comes from the highly acclaimed Tutti-Frutti and York Theatre.

Described as a must-see seasonal treat from award- winning playwright Mike Kenny, it will be staged from December 12 to 28 at the Huddersfield theatre.

Winter is coming, the trees are bare, the birds fly south, and the sheep are flocking, seeking shelter from the wind.

As the falling snow flurries wolf footprints can be seen padded into the hard ground.

But standing on the hill top a boy is watching his sheep. He is bored, seeking adventure, and looking for the next big thing!

He is a boy tasked to keep his community safe but with a vivid imagination, a boy who makes up stories and craves the thrill of the unknown.

Featuring songs, hilarious sheep and perhaps a scary wolf or two, The Boy Who Cried Wolf is aimed at all the family.

Director Wendy Harris said: “Our village-knitter-storytellers will weave this wonderful, funny and enchanting story delighting families and children.

. .

“With new songs written by the locally trained composer Dominic Sales, this show with its talented ensemble of actor musicians is one not to miss!”
