HUMPTY Dumpty will be taking to the stage in Grays next week.

The Thameside Theatre, in Orsett Road, promises to be full of youth, laughter and audience participation for two shows of Humpty Dumpty and the Big Book of Nursery Rhymes on Tuesday.

The colourful show centres on a girl called Rose, who is lost in Rhyme Town, but Humpty knows how to get her home, with the help of all the favourite nursery rhyme characters.

Audience members must help Humpty and Rose collect magic to get home by meeting nursery favourites, including Old King Cole, Little Bo Peep, the Grand Old Duke of York and Little Miss Muffet – as well as singing their songs.

Show times are 1pm and 3pm.

Tickets are £8.50, or £7.50 each if you buy ten or more, and are available online at www. or by calling the box office between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday on 0845 300526.
