Fantastic Foxes

Curve Community production.

This is the story of a remarkable city, fearless underdogs and Fantastic Foxes. The story of a football club and its generations of devoted fans.

From the creation of the Leicester Fosse team in 1884, to the first silverware in 1890, the great escape of 2015 and the 5000-1 Premier League win of 2016 – plus all the heartache and elation along the way: no matter how our city has changed over the years, we’ve always been united as the Blue Army.

This summer at Curve, a community ensemble brings the real (and sometimes imagined) story of our city and club to life on stage, where Jamie Vardy’s having a party, Gordon Banks has the safest gloves in the land and Gary Lineker’s picking out his best pants.

Age Guidance: 14+ (May contain strong language)
Running Time: Approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes (including a 20-minute interval)

The Lion Inside

‘No matter your size, we all have a mouse and a lion inside.’

A bestselling story about confidence, self-esteem, and a shy little mouse who sets out on a journey to find his roar. In a dry dusty place where the sand sparkled gold, stood a mighty flat rock, all craggy and old. And under that rock in a tinyful house, lived the littlest, quietest, meekest brown mouse.

Fed up of being ignored and forgotten by the other animals, Mouse wishes he could roar like Lion. But, as he discovers, even the biggest, bossiest people are scared sometimes … and even the smallest creatures can have the heart of a lion!

Based on the bestselling story by Rachel Bright & Jim Field, this brand-new adaptation for the stage is directed by Sarah Punshon (The Jungle Book), with music and lyrics by Eamonn O’Dwyer (Brief Encounter).

Age Guidance: 3+, but all ages are welcome
