“Not I said the Pig.”
“Not I said the Rat.”

Making bread is hard work, but it would be a lot easier if the lazy farm yard animals got off their reclining sofas and lent a hand. This ingenious adaptation of the nursery school favourite features a host of animal puppets, sing-along songs and mad-cap comic routines. It's a real treat for the whole family!

"All of the children were completely enraptured for the whole 60 minutes. It was brilliantly acted and visually stunning."
"The Little Red Hen was amazing, kept 9 year 3-6 pupils with Special Educational Needs entertained and enthralled throughout. Truly fabulous." ★★★★★
