A musical adaptation of Enid Blyton’s children’s adventure novel series, The Famous Five, has been announced! The show will be co-produced by Chichester Festival Theatre and Theatr Clwyd in Mold.

The musical will be adapted for the stage by Elinor Cook, with music and lyrics by Theo Jamieson (U.Me) and directed by Clwyd’s artistic director Tamara Harvey.

The musical will see the famous five discover a ruined castle on Kirrin Island that is rumoured to harbour secrets. Five heads may be better than one when it comes to solving mysteries.
