From your five a day to the latest weight loss plan, consumers have been presented with some remarkable dieting plans down the years but none so delightful and memorable as the one enjoyed by the old lady in the nursery rhyme There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly.
First written as a song in 1953 it was a chart topping hit for singer, actor and all round good guy Burl Ives before being adapted into a best selling book by Pam Adams a few years later. This version, found in schools, nurseries and homes across the world is currently celebrating its forty fifth anniversary and to mark the occasion popular Children’s author Steven Lee (How The Koala Learnt To Hug, Don’t Dribble On The Dragon) has turned this much loved tale into a magical musical stage show written especially for children to enjoy with their parents.
With a feast of first class games, colourful animal characters and heart warming fun it’s the family treat you can enjoy between meals without ruining your appetite!
For anyone aged 2 to 102.
There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly will be appearing at Torch Theatre on Thursday 12 April at 14:30. Prices: £8.50 | £7.50 Child.
