GORRID THE HORRID AND THE MISSING INGREDIENT – by Al Start & Nicola Bloom

Gorrid the Horrid was trying to get her ghastly Cookery Badge, but it wasn’t going very well. It seemed the harder she tried the nicer her food tasted. Her Toad and Turnip Pie was terrifically tasty, her Lurgy Loaf was lickably luscious and her Mouldy Mushroom Meringue was mouth-wateringly moreish!

If Gorrid was going to pass the test, she would need to cook up the most truly disgusting dish ever, because the worse the food; the bigger the badge!! Gorrid finds a really rancid recipe but the most vital ingredient goes missing (oh no!!!!)

Join Gorrid and her friends as she goes in search for the missing ingredient……..

Show details:
75 minutes. Performed with a cast of three and optional live band. Perfect for Halloween or for year-round spooky fun!

This musical show for children under 10 yrs is bursting at the seams with excellent original songs by writing duo Al Start & Nicola Bloom. Following the sell-out success of their first show, A Pirate Adventure, the duo took to the spooky basement clutching candles to write this charmingly disgusting tale of friendship, mystery, spells, witches’ cats and the search for all that is wrong and foul in this witchy world!

This one hour-and-a-bit show features three actors, a puppet, several dozen characters and some impossibly fast costume changes. The music is awesome, the humour is pitched just right for your little monsters and, of course, it’s great for the grown-ups!
