Full casting has been announced for Roald Dahl’s The Twits.
Following a run at the Lyric Theatre in Hong Kong (25th - 27th Nov), the production will return to the UK for seasons at Leicester Curve (10th Dec - 15 Jan) and Rose Theatre Kingston (5th - 16th Apr).
Mr. and Mrs. Twit will be played by Robert Pickavance and Jo Mousley. Pickavance has previously played other iconic Dahl characters on stage including The BFG and Grasshopper in James and The Giant Peach.
The Muggle-Wump family will be played by Luke Johnson as Daddy Muggle-Wump, Liz Jadav as Mummy Muggle-Wump, Charlotte Workman as Girl Muggle-Wump and Alex Chang as Boy Muggle-Wump. The Roly-Poly Bird will be played by Jack Horner.
Composer and Curve Associate Artist Dougal Irvine returns to create new songs and music for the production, following his work on last year’s production of Roald Dahl’s The Witches. Director Max Webster will also be joined by Linbury Prize Finalist Georgia Lowe, both creating work at Curve for the first time.
The Twits is the second Made at Curve Christmas show created specifically for young people and their families and follows the success of Nikolai Foster’s production of The Witches, which will run at West Yorkshire Playhouse over Christmas. The productions are programmed to coincide with the Dahl 100 anniversary.
