Charles Kingsley's The Water Babies is one of the most enduring of all fairy tales, and continues to delight, engage and intrigue children and adults. It is the saga of a boy chimney-sweep and his spirit-journey as a Water-Baby, now with Freddie Hill’s musical edge.

Freddie’s score, delivered by an 11-piece orchestra, contains both period and contemporary elements, crosses boundaries of style and times as freely as the story itself.

Performed by a cast of renowned and new talents which include:
- Mara Kiek, as the "Irishwoman" who represents the grim backdrop of early Industrial Revolution England.
- Child- leads of Sasha Cole as the chimney-sweep Tom, and Lucia Smith as Ellie, the daughter of landed gentry. Join us in celebrating their debuts into professional theatre.

As Freddie Hill, the Composer & Musical Director, said: “While highlighting Kingsley's wry humour and irony, my treatment of The Water Babies is mindful of the great themes which exercise our minds now as in Victorian times -scientific progress, environmental responsibility and social justice”.
