RISSMANN   
Sir Scallywag and the Golden Underpants (c. 50’)

When King Colin’s golden underpants go missing and the royal bottom is bared, it’s Sir Scallywag to the rescue! Brave and bold, courageous and true, he’s the perfect knight for the job… and what does it matter that he’s only six?!

Alongside other pieces including extracts from Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks, Sir Scallywag features lots of audience participation and illustrated projections (including a brief appearance of the King’s bare bottom!). This laugh-out-loud musical adventure is by composer Paul Rissmann, based on the book by Giles Andreae, illustrated by Korky Paul and published by Puffin, Penguin Books Ltd.

Don't forget to join us for our Sir Scallywag-inspired foyer activities!

We have lots of exciting activities for you to take part in before the concert starts. Foyer activities begin 90 mins prior to each concert.

Activities include:

  • Become maestro of our multi-coloured orchestra and try out a range of child-friendly instruments.
  • Illustration workshops with Korky Paul

Recommended for children aged 3+
