and the


“Peter and the Wolf” was written by Sergie Prokofiev in 1936 at the request by Natalya Sats of the Central Children's Theatre in Moscow. The idea was to write a new musical symphony for children. This is the story of a mischievous boy living with his grandfather.
Against his grandfathers wishes, Peter wanders out into the meadow to play with his animal friends. His grandfather has warned him of a wolf in the nearby forest, and not heeding his advice, he finds himself in peril. Find out how this clever boy with his animal friends triumphs in this classic tale.

Peter and the Wolf contains some of the most recognisable music ever composed.

A real masterpiece

After the show there is a fun puppet demonstration, with lots of audience participation, giving an insight into how to create a character. This is followed by 'How to make your own Peter and the Wolf puppets', using things that can be found around the home.
The audience are then invited to come and meet the puppets where they can also take photographs. The puppeteers will happily chat and give advice on how to put on a show.

Suitable for theatres, arts centres and schools

“Peter and the Wolf beautifully presented and performed by Ken Haines, delighted two full houses of children in the Mill Studio at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre. We would not hesitate to re-book this lovely show next year. Ken has presented many shows in the Mill Studio- they are always a joy for our audience and staff.”
