A new family musical adaptation of Nicobobinus by much loved Monty Python star Terry Jones.

‘Nicobobinus’ is a fantasy adventure story about a boy who could do anything. Well, could he?

When Nicobobinus is magically turned to gold, he, and his wild best friend Rosie, embark on a tub-thumping musical adventure to discover the Land of Dragons. On the way their friendship, humanity and overall brilliantness is put to the test as they are propelled into a nonstop series of capers and calamities, which will test our young heroes’ resolve and have audiences laughing out loud.

The best of Terry Jones’ vivid and enigmatic characters like kidnapping pirates, murderous monks and operatic dragons, all lie in store for Nicobobinus and Rosie as they wend their way on this hilarious and thrilling journey.

Told from the mouths and instruments of an unruly band of gypsies who narrate and score our hero’s quest the adaptation is glistening with Terry Jones’ top class dialogue which is hilarious, clever and bursting with cheeky irony. Fairy story, adventure, magic, mystery, morality and humour are combined with effortless skill to produce a unique modern fairy tale.
