Oliver in the Overworld by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazelwood is the first-ever musical created from scratch with sign language.

West Sussex audiences can see it live on stage at Horsham’s Capitol on May 4 (2pm).

Presented by The Krazy Kat Theatre Company, the show tells a funny, surreal tale of a little deaf boy who travels to The Overworld, The Land of Machinery, seeking the parts to mend the memory of his best friend Oliver the Grandfather Clock.

Created by multi award -winning artistic director Kinny Gardner, with beautiful puppets, magical transformations, 10 super songs and daft dances, and featuring fully integrated sign language, this is an imaginative theatre show with big laughs.

The madcap musical adventure lasts 55 minutes and is suitable for 3-7 year olds and their families and friends. It is also suitable for both deaf and hearing audiences.

Tickets cost £12.
