Entertainment One’s (eOne) Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom hails from the award- winning animation studio Astley Baker Davies, creators of the global preschool phenomenon Peppa Pig. Currently a top rated show for pre-schoolers Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom airs daily on Nick Jr and on 5’s Milkshake and has picked up numerous accolades including a BAFTA award, British Animation Award and an Emmy Award.

Fiery Light Productions have brought all the magic of the show on the small screen to the stage in this exciting musical adventure. Ben and Holly have fun and games helping Gaston clean up his messy cave; they go on a trip to The Big World with tooth-fairy Nanny Plum; and still have time to plan a surprise for King Elf’s birthday party, complete with an unplanned jelly flood.

Packed full of games, songs and laughter, this is an enchanting and magical visit to the Little Kingdom. This beautiful story of elves, princesses and childhood

innocence will delight all the family.

Richard Lewis has adapted the TV animation for the stage and also directs. He also adapted and directed the five highly popular Peppa Pig theatre tours (four of which had sell-out West End Christmas), two LazyTown Live! tours (2007 – 2009) and Octonauts and the Deep Sea Volcano Adventure (2014 – 2015). The composer is the highly talented Mani Svavarsson who has composed the music for a number of FieryLight shows including LazyTown Live!, Octonauts and the Deep Sea Volcano Adventure and all of the live Peppa Pig shows.

Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom is produced by Fiery Light Productions (Fiery Angel and Limelight Productions) who also produced LazyTown Live!, Roald Dahl’s The BFG, Octonauts and the Deep Sea Volcano Adventure and the five Peppa Pig stage tours, Peppa Pig’s Party and Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt, Peppa Pig’s Big Splash and the current Peppa Pig’s Surprise.
