For my lunch today I would like... a nice juicy little child!

'For my lunch today I would like... a nice juicy little child!'

The Enormous Crocodile is weaving his way through the jungle in search of delicious little fingers and squidgy podgy knees.

Only the other jungle creatures can foil his secret plans and clever tricks, but they’re going to have to find a large amount of courage to stop this greedy brute.

This new musical version of Roald Dahl’s picture book has tasty tunes by Ahmed Abdullahi Gallab and has a rib-tickling book and lyrics by Suhayla El-Bushra, and additional music and lyrics by Tom Brady. Developed and Directed by Emily Lim, it features a menagerie of mischievous puppets by co-director and puppetry designer Toby Olié, with set and costume design by Fly Davis. The jungle awaits the bravest of children!

The Enormous Crocodile musical was developed by Emily Lim, Ahmed Abdullahi Gallab, Suhayla El-Bushra, Tom Brady and Roald Dahl Story Company.

A Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, Roald Dahl Story Company and Leeds Playhouse production.

Under 4's are permitted but everyone aged two and over must have their own ticket.

The award-winning Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is a London landmark – a firm fixture of summer in the city, providing a cultural hub in the beautiful surroundings of a Royal Park.

Its steeply raked auditorium is one of the largest in London with 1,240 seats, yet those who attend say it is one of the most intimate.

Each night an incomparable atmosphere is created by the buzz of people enjoying their theatregoing in every sense: friends setting up hampers on the picnic lawn, filling their glasses with wine or drinking Pimms in the bar as the fairy lights twinkle in the trees.

Yet the Open Air Theatre is not just about an amazing atmosphere, it is about remarkable storytelling too. Built upon a core of outstanding dramatic credentials, the aim is to present bold and dynamic productions that stimulate the senses. Weather and climate add a thrilling contribution to the work, making the relationship between performer, text and audience a truly unique event at every performance.

Over 130,000 people attend the four annual productions between May and September.

Baker Street is the closest tube station and is served by the Bakerloo, Circle, Hammersmith and City, Jubilee and Metropolitan lines. Marylebone is a 15 minute walk to the west Euston is a 30 minute walk to the east.
