Tom Thumb: Lyngo Theatre Company
Tom Thumb by Marcello Chiarenza
Performed by Patrick Lynch
Original music by Carlo 'Cialdo' Capelli
Assistant director Gianni Bissaca
'Here I am!' Tom stays one tiny step ahead of everyone to save his brothers from mum, dad and the monster.

For ages 6+.
Lyngo is a children's theatre company that has been touring the UK, Ireland and Europe since 2003. They have brought new and innovative theatre from Italy to many different venues and have had regular support and funding from the Arts Council, England.
