Wonderful Beast Theatre Company

Wonderful Beast is the touring theatre company of myths, legends, folk tales and stories for all ages.

Co-founded in 1997 by Alys Kihl and Penny Cherns and a group of like-minded spirits, including Adrian Mitchell and Roger Lloyd Pack, Wonderful Beast has toured nationally, played in India, collaborated with English Touring Opera and created a festival of fairy tales, Storm of Stories. 

For the past thirteen years, they have been based in Suffolk, where they create interactive performances for babies and their parents/carers, workshops for schools, and new plays for new audiences. The company has also formed an amateur choir, the Wonderful Beast Singers, which started as a scratch choir in their first community opera but is now a staple of the company. 

Music and storytelling are at the heart of Wonderful Beast's work.
