Theatr Clwyd has launched a new family-friendly original musical set for a two week run at the Mold venue.

Theatr Clwyd and Chichester Festival Theatre came together for the world première production of brand-new musical The Famous Five, based on the much-loved books by Enid Blyton, written by Elinor Cook with music and lyrics by Theo Jamieson.

The show follows George and her dog Timmy as she finds out her cousins Julian, Anne and Dick are coming to stay, much to her dislike.

But out in the bay lies Kirrin Island and a ruined castle filled with mysteries to solve. Together they embark on a daring mission with the future of the planet at stake – a mission that might just be the making of the Famous Five.
