DNA Puppetry and Visual Theatre presents

Chicken Licken

Sun 21 Apr, 2:30pm at Red Brick Auditorium

Tickets: £8

Age: 3+

A baby chick is born and thinks the sky is falling down. On the way to tell the King, she meets Henny Penny, Ducky Lucky & Turkey Lurkey, but there’s a shocking surprise! Chicken Licken grows up to be the Little Red Hen and asks her friends to help her make bread, but no one wants to play! Mixed into this recipe of food, puppets and music is the story of Little Red Hen and the sly Foxy Loxy. Will she outwit him and save her stuffing?

A tour-de-force one man show for three to eight year olds (but everyone will love). A man is baking bread but events quickly unfold as a little chick hatches from the egg. Soon the stories of ‘Chicken Licken’, ‘The Little Red Hen’ and ‘The Fox and the Hen’ are played out in a witty display of dexterity and charm. Now touring the UK performed by original performer and DNA co-founder Adam Bennett

“Chicken Licken does the seemingly impossible – appealing to 3 – 8 year olds and fans of The Great British Bake Off. Adam Bennett is the only star of this one-man cookery show, casually making bread – Mary Berry herself can’t match his self-assured style and natural relationship with the viewers. Though performing classic stories, the audience genuinely don’t know what is going to happen next, and even more remarkably, it seems Bennett might not either. He makes a production that has been around for 15 years feel as fresh as a newly-baked loaf.Flossie Waite childrenstheatrereviews.com
