George’s Marvellous Medicine
It’s the half term holiday and George Kranky is looking forward to a break from school when a letter from Grandma arrives announcing that she is coming to stay – that very day! Soon she is making George’s life miserable with spiteful comments and demands for doses of medicine! But one day, when his parents leave him alone with the grizzly old grunion, George takes his chance and sets about creating a brand new medicine to cure her of her cruelty. Little does he know that his perilous potion will be the start of a rather marvellous adventure…
This will be Easter Half Term Mayhem at the Altrincham Garrick Playhouse! This imaginative and entertaining stage adaptation of Roald Dahl’s much loved children’s book is bursting with growing grannies, feathery farm animals and bags of frothbuggling family fun.
Free Car Parking. Cosy Bar. Great Prices.
