Stage show based on popular nursery rhyme visits town for first time


A stage show based on the hugely popular There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly is visiting Warrington for the first time.

From your five-a-day to the latest weight-loss advice, consumers have been presented with some remarkable nutrition plans through the years; but none as delightful and memorable as the one enjoyed in this classic nursery rhyme.

First written as a song in 1953, it was a chart-topping hit for singer, actor and all-round good guy Burl Ives, before being adapted into a best-selling book by Pam Adams a few years later.

This version, found in schools, nurseries and homes across the world, is celebrating its 45th anniversary and to mark the occasion popular children’s author Steven Lee (How the Koala Learnt to HugDon’t Dribble on the Dragon) has turned this much-loved tale into a magical, musical stage show written especially for children to enjoy with their parents.

The audience will recognise songs including If You’re Happy and You Know ItOld Macdonald Had a Farm, and Incy Wincy Spider in this People’s Theatre Company production.

With a feast of fun-filled games, colourful animal characters and heart-warming fun,There Was an Old Lady is the perfect family treat you can enjoy between meals without ruining your appetite!

Designed for children and adults aged two and above, the show will be appearing at Warrington’s Pyramid arts centre on Saturday February 23 2019.
