Get ready, West Wales families, for a fin-tastic adventure that’s diving straight into Gwyn Hall, Neath, this autumn! “Shark in the Park,” a musical extravaganza that brings to life the beloved tales of Timothy Pope and his trusty telescope, is set to make a splash and entertain audiences of all ages. This is not just any day out; it’s a chance to immerse yourself and your little ones in a world of imagination, laughter, and the sheer joy of storytelling.

Based on the captivating series by Nick Sharratt, including “Shark in the Park,” “Shark in the Dark,” and “Shark in the Park on a Windy Day,” this theatrical adventure follows the curious Timothy Pope on three thrilling escapades. With each peek through his telescope, Timothy (and you!) might just spot something unexpected. Is it really a shark he sees, or is it something (or someone) else entirely? You’ll have to come along to find out!

This delightful production is more than a show; it’s an engaging experience that promises to whisk you away on a journey through the clever and ingeniously simple world Nick Sharratt created in his keyhole books. These stories have been transformed for the stage in a way that’s both faithful to the original tales and bursting with fresh, dynamic energy.

Critics are raving, with Edinburgh Festival For Kids calling it “Another foot-tapping musical delight of a show,” and The Stage applauding its “triumphant makeover for the stage.” It’s clear that “Shark in the Park” is a hit, loved by children, parents, and critics alike.

So, why not treat your family to a day filled with wonder and excitement? Gwyn Hall’s welcoming vibe paired with this captivating performance creates the ultimate setting for an unforgettable family experience. Step into the storybook world of Timothy Pope and embark on a journey to uncover if there’s truly a shark hiding in the park, or if it’s simply the thrill and delight of storytelling unfolding.
