The Queen's Nose - staged reading


As part of Aria Entertainment's FROM PAGE TO STAGE festival of new musicals which includes staged readings, showcases of new musicals, concerts and one fully produced musical.

It’s 1977 and the Queen’s Silver Jubilee - but a certain 12-year-old won’t be joining the street party. Feisty Harmony Parker has big ideas that no one agrees with. She prefers animals to humans, leading her vexed parents to ban all pets from their spruce Wimbledon semi. Enter the irreverent Uncle Ginger, fellow animal lover and secret curator of magic.

Via some devilish riddles, Ginger grants his niece the chance to live her dreams. But when Harmony decides to settle a few scores instead, dreams soon collide with reality, head-on!

A delightful new family musical from Charles Miller and Tim Sanders, The Queen’s Nose charts a funny, tender and magical coming of age. Based on the 1995 BBC television series and novel by Dick King-Smith (Babe the Sheep Pig).
