Tom Thumb

A triple bill of music theatre works inspired by the sea, directed by Jeremy James Taylor.

The Upside Down Sailor, a music theatre production based on the dramatic survival story of Tony Bullimore, the solo, round-the-world yachtsman whose boat capsized.
The Golden Vanity – a short opera for boys’ voices by Benjamin Britten.
Sinbad the Sailor – a new and very silly jazz oratorio by David Nield and Jeremy James Taylor, performed by over 100 local children.

Sea Stories features more than 140 local children, a wind ensemble from the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music, students from Kingston University, the Tiffin Boys Choir, broadcaster and The One Show presenter Angellica Bell and narration by Game of Thrones’ Robert Pugh.

Special rates for school groups are available through the Rose Theatre box office.
