Little Howard and the Magic Pencil of Life and Death
On an adventure which includes hilarious songs, games, the weirdest picture book ever written and some magic glasses, Big Howard and Little Howard fight to save the survival of cartoon-kind. From stars of the Royal Variety and a writer of Danger Mouse and Horrible Histories.
Following the success of their TV show ‘Little Howard’s Big Question’ (CBBC) real human Big Howard and animated six-year-old Little Howard are bringing their family comedy show to the Mercury Theatre.
Little Howard has discovered the pencil that drew him. But, on the other end of this magical pencil of life is the eraser of death, and a dark force is at large determined to rub the cheeky chap out for good. And, as if that wasn’t enough, Big Howard has had a real-life baby who is getting a little too much attention! Can Little Howard escape his supernatural nemesis? How will he get rid of this pesky new arrival? Who knows … but there will be danger, drama and a lot of laughs on the way
With interactive stand-up, 3D animation and lots of songs this really is a show that all the family can enjoy.
