Walter and the Pigeons
Music by Malcolm Archer: Book and lyrics by Tony Cottrell
Walter, a hen-pecked, insignificant little man, is driven to the verge of despair when he discovers that his beloved pigeons have been set free from the pigeon coop by his nagging wife. At the very moment he is about to jump off the roof of his house he is interrupted by two plump pigeons, Crum and Plum .... an so begins his magical adventure into the world of birds - and a marauding cat! With lots of tuneful, catchy music and plenty of scope for imaginative staging and costumes, this delightful show is ideal for 9 - 14 year olds.
