IF you don't know who the Twirlywoos are, you're probably aged over ten or you are not a parent with young children.

But if you do know who they are, the place to go will be Worcester's Swan Theatre this April, when characters from the beloved TV show will be live on stage.

A spokesman said: "MEI Theatrical are delighted to announce that the wonderful world of Twirlywoos – as seen on CBeebies – will be brought to life on stage for the first time this year. "Toodloo, Great BigHoo, Chickedy, Chick and Peekaboo will set sail around the UK in a brand-new theatrical adventure, playing at The Swan Theatre on Friday April 26."

The spokesman added: "Featuring all of the favourite characters from the hit TV show, families can expect mischief, music and plenty of surprises as the Twirlywoos embark on a new adventure on board their Big Red Boat.

"With beautifully inventive puppetry, Twirlywoos Live! promises to be a laugh-out-loud treat for little ones."

Twirlywoos Live! is brought to the stage by MEI Theatrical, whose recent productions include Sarah and Duck Live on Stage (Polka Theatre and UK Tour) and The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show (West End), which will also play at the Swan Theatre later this year.

It is written by Zoe Bourn, who has brought to life some of the world’s best-loved children’s titles including Thomas and Friends and Fireman Sam Live!

The spokesman said: "Twirlywoos was first broadcast on CBeebies in 2015, and in 2017 celebrated its 100th episode. It is co-created by Anne Wood, who has devised shows including Teletubbies, and Steve Roberts, who with Anne co-created the Bafta-winning CBeebies series Dipdap.
