Press Release

Where is Peter Rabbit?, inspired by Beatrix Potter’s classic Tales, will thrill children and the young-at-heart alike. The shows - with a new enhanced storyline - will feature for the first time the voice of TV presenter and musician Myleene Klass as the narrator, alongside Olivier Award-winning actor and comedian Griff Rhys Jones.

Myleene Klass said “I have always loved and admired the Beatrix Potter books. I grew up reading them and have introduced these classic tales to my children. Peter Rabbit is such a wonderful character - cheeky, mischievous, adventurous and inquisitive. I am thrilled to be lending my voice to this enchanting show for all the family.”

Griff Rhys Jones added “The characters and the strange life of animals are so well observed by Beatrix Potter and not just in her beautiful illustrations. I don’t think we cherish things quite as much as we do children’s books, handed down like golden gems; and it’s remarkable to think that these stories are still so loved. It is wonderful that these magical tales of countryside life will be returning to the Theatre Royal Haymarket this summer.”

Where is Peter Rabbit? began life at the Old Laundry Theatre in Bowness-On-Windermere in June 2016 and has enthralled audiences and garnered rave reviews ever since. Classic Beatrix Potter tales leap from the glossy pages onto the West End stage with ease drawing children and adults alike into the imaginary world of Peter Rabbit and his friends.

Hop onto your seats and immerse yourself in the magical world of Beatrix Potter. Watch with delight as your favourite stories and most beloved characters are brought to life in this theatrical spectacular, with beautifully handcrafted puppets, enchanting original songs and a sprinkle of magic. Look out for the ferocious Mr. McGregor, reach heady heights with Jemima Puddle-Duck, do the laundry with Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and of course, fall in love with the mischievous Peter Rabbit. 

Shake your tail to 15 of the most joyful songs all performed live, with lyrics by one of Britain’s most beloved playwrights, Sir Alan Ayckbourn. And twinkle your eyes at the delightful dancing and entrancing set. 

Handed down from generation to generation, these stories hold a special place in our hearts, so whether a warm hug of fluffy nostalgia, or the perfect introduction to Beatrix Potter’s Tales, this is a truly charming production for the whole family to cherish and enjoy together.

Devised by Roger Glossop, and directed and choreographed by Sheila Carter, this innovative show combines live performance, projection and recording in a thoroughly interactive new magical musical, entirely based on the original Tales by Beatrix Potter.
