Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain

by The Wardrobe Ensemble

A  Bristol Old Vic and The Wardrobe Ensemble co-production.

Devised by the company, based on the book by Edward Ardizzone

Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain was performed at The Lantern, Colston Hall Christmas 2016.


Tim wants to be a sailor. He knows all the knots, can name every boat and sing all the sailors' songs. But there's one problem; he is much too young! So, one day, he accidentally-on-purpose stows away on a steam ship and meets the Brave Sea Captain. Will he earn his sea legs, chart the ocean blue and sail home to his family?

Transforming The Lantern at Colston Hall into a nautical playground, Little Tim... will be brought to life by the magical Wardrobe Ensemble (Eloise and the Curse of the Golden Whisk), based on the 80-year old classic story by Edward Ardizzone. In their sea-safe hands, you will enjoy an interactive voyage featuring sea shanties, music and dance that is perfect for ages 0-7 and their families.
