Carrot Productions team up with Aardman Animations for Wallace & Gromit's Musical Marvels UK tour in Spring 2019
The 38 date tour will feature brand new music to accompany Musical Marvels, which was first screened at the BBC Proms in 2012, along with interactive escapades and enthusiastic entertainment by presenter Matthew Sharp and the Picture House Orchestra. This is a fantastic opportunity for young audiences to experience live classical music for the first time, in an accessible, fun way. Parents will also enjoy reliving their youth, with a screening in the second half of the all-time classic Aardman animation, The Wrong Trousers, again with live orchestral accompaniment – a world first.
The tour is presented by Carrot Productions – who have been given exclusive rights to tour the production.
Carrot's Managing Director, Rachel Whibley, said:
“With six years’ experience behind us of presenting The Snowman to thousands of satisfied audience members across the country, we are well placed to deliver this wonderful Wallace & Gromit programme. It will be a pleasure to present such a high-quality show in partnership with the inspirational team at Aardman, providing huge fun for audiences of all ages”.
The show's premiere will take place on 15 May 2019 at the National Film and Television School, where Nick Park created his Academy Award® nominated graduation film Wallace & Gromit: A Grand Day Out. In a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans, both Nick Park and composer of the Wallace & Gromit scores Julian Nott (also an alumnus of the NFTS) will also take part in a question and answer session as part of the event.
Sean Clarke, Head of Rights and Brand Development, Aardman added:
“Carrot Productions have produced a fantastic show, featuring live orchestral music for one of Aardman’s best loved shorts, The Wrong Trousers, and we look forward to audiences across the UK having the opportunity to enjoy this unique musical experience.”
