The Twits – All Cast Rehearsal

A FANTASTIC all cast rehearsal! F

or those who know the story, you will recognise the phrase ‘Giant Skillywiggler’. For those who don’t, imagine a creature pulled from the darkest depths of Africa whose sole purpose is bring fear through the consumption of toes and knees.

Our adaptation sees Mr Twit creating the monster from thin air with the aid of a slimy frog. Going out into the mist to capture a frog allowed the entire cast to show their colours… turning out to be an astounding toad green!

Every cast member becomes a frog in a spectacular sequence of choreography which left us in stitches. Incredibly proud of everyone, and cannot wait to do more!

Starting our first rehearsal with exploring characters proved wonderful. The stage exploded with monkeys, birds, frogs and all manor of ferocious jungle animals.

A magnificent start to a mischievous story.
