Babe The Sheep-Pig set for West Yorkshire Playhouse

The stage adaptation of the classic movie arrives this February.

Adapted from Dick King-Smith’s much-loved children’s novel which inspired the Oscar-winning film, Babe, The Sheep-Pig will be brought to life on stage in an enchanting new production at West Yorkshire Playhouse.

Featuring stunning puppetry, an original score and an utterly charming ‘baa-ber sheep’ quartet, Babe and the residents of Hogget’s Farm arrive in the Quarry Theatre from 15th to 18th February as part of a national Tour.

When Babe arrives at Hogget’s Farm he is taken in by the trusty sheep-dog Fly, and soon discovers a talent for herding. With the help of his adopted Mum, the polite piglet soon wins over the most suspicious of sheep. But can a small pig make it in a dog’s world, and when his farmyard friends are in trouble can Babe save the day?

The cast of actor-musicians features Emma Barclay (You Me Bum Bum Train) as Mrs Hogget, Olivier Award-nominated Nicola Blackman (Little Shop of Horrors and The Lion King, West End) as Fly, Oliver Grant (War Horse, National Theatre) as Babe/Sheep and Ben Ingles (Romeo and Juliet, RSC) as Farmer Hogget. Ben Ingles trained in Yorkshire at Bretton Hall.

Babe, The Sheep-Pig is at West Yorkshire Playhouse from 15th to 18th February. Book online at wyp.org.uk or call the Box Office on 0113 213 7700.
