Opening December 2012 at the Arts Theatre.

David Hunter from Superstar will be starring as Horton. Information from his Facebook page.

I'm looking forward to seeing this, I have read a lot about it. If it's playing the Arts though, I would imagine it won't be a huge production. Won't stop me going though!

I like some of the cast in this and am thinking of going but I am totally mystified at the performance times !
It is on at 10.30 am every day except mondays with additional 1pm performances on saturdays and sundays ... 10.30 am ???

I noticed that too lesterf, rather early for anyone travelling into London. Especially with children...

Looks as though A CHRISTMAS CAROL with SIMON CALLOW is running simultaneously,  at more conventional performance times!

It's a good cast & the cast photos that have been released look great, would quite like to see it too.

But I really think they will struggle to fill seats at that time of day - every day!

Kids get up very early! Anyone in London would be well ready by 10.30am

I'm tempted to go and see this mainly because it gives the possibility to see four shows in one day, but slight wary as a 30 something year old bloke on his own might look a bit weird.

The Gruffelo often runs in the mornings,  its always strange to see a stream of families coming out a theatre when heading in to the box office to pick up matinee tickets.

Id love to see it but not sure I could cope with all the families early on a weekend morning.

Thats the problem .... many theatregoers are outside London and the cheaper fares and London Underground non rush hour fares don't start until 9.30 am.. My 1st cheaper train to get into London is 9.52 so its very touch and go !

Maybe we should all band together!

Because that wouldn't look even weirder. We'd probably find ourselves dragged into some sort of enquiry.

Fair point.
