From the author of Alice in Wonderland comes an impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an imaginary creature! A musical comedy about a ragtag gang of adventurers all trying to catch the Snark, inspired by the poem by Lewis Carroll. Can a Snark be caught with soap? Will the Beaver keep out of the hungry Butcher's way? Will the Baker remember his name? Does anyone even know what a Snark actually looks like? Featuring puppetry, original songs and lots of silliness, this magical comedy adventure will delight, excite and entertain.
