The Drum


Following sell out performances of 3 Little Pigs and Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Stuff and Nonsense return to the Theatre Royal Plymouth with their latest production.

Inspired by the Muppets, Danny Kaye and good old family movies, this romp through a classic, eccentric tale tells the story of an Emperor who loves clothes more than anything. But there is a problem… despite a wardrobe the size of Paris, he’s run out of outfits and it’s his birthday tomorrow! He hasn’t got a stitch to wear!

When two ‘designers’ come to town with a promise to create him an outfit that’s ‘never been seen before’, our eccentric Emperor doesn’t quite realise the spectacle he is about to make.

Populated with puppets, music and song, this inventive and energetic production is told in true Stuff and Nonsense style; with unending energy, great storytelling and, as always, a show for all the family.
