Join Kingsley Players Youth Theatre for an outdoor summer production of ‘Babe, the Sheep Pig’.

Award-winning Kingsley Players Youth Theatre will be back on stage for four performances of ‘Babe, the Sheep Pig’ – a comic tale of farmyard high adventures that became the hit movie ‘Babe’.

Based on a book by Dick King-Smith, David Wood’s play tells the story of one piglet’s rise to stardom as the world famous ‘sheep pig’.

Staged in the delightful outdoor summer setting of Kingsley St John’s School playing field, 12 talented young performers invite you to meet Farmer Hogget and his zany farmyard friends, with evening performances at 7pm on Friday 14 and Saturday 15 July, and matinee 2.30pm shows on Saturday and Sunday 16 July.

Please bring your own chair or picnic rug to sit on. A tuck shop will be available at all performances.

Director Jake Powell said: “Babe has captivated audiences for 40 years, first as a children’s book written by Dick King-Smith, then as an Oscar winning film, before being adapted for the stage by celebrated children’s playwright, David Wood. We are thrilled to be bringing this story to the stage, performing outdoors at Kingsley St John’s Primary School.”

Tickets cost £5 for adults and children. These can be booked online at  or by ringing the box office on 07724 892154.
