The First Hippo on the Moon

Three…two…one…blast off! The First Hippo on the Moon will be landing at Middlesbrough Theatre on Saturday, April 1. 

From bestselling children’s author David Walliams comes an explosively funny space adventure for children of three and up. Two big hippos. One ENORMOUS dream. Who can make it to the moon first? 

David Walliams has taken the literary world by storm and his brilliantly funny stories are adored by children the world over! 

He has achieved unprecedented critical acclaim and quickly developed a reputation as a natural successor to Roald Dahl. 

His books have been translated into over 45 languages and sold over 9.5 million copies in the UK alone. 

Adapted for the stage by acclaimed award winning Theatre company Les Petits and hot on the heels of their hugely successful Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs tour and immersive hit Adventures in Wonderland, comes a fantastical adventure featuring puppetry, music, mayhem and a giant space race to the moon! 

The creative team have worked on such hit shows such as Dr Seuss’ The Lorax, The Nationals’ Elephantom, Warhorse and Raymond Briggs’ The Bear.
