First ever musical for deaf children to debut at Arena Theatre

Oliver in the Overworld is the first ever musical created from scratch with sign language and is being shown at the Arena Theatre in Wolverhampton from 7 - 8 April 2017. 

The show is the first of its kind - the first ever musical for deaf children. This is the first stage production of the musical, written in the 70s by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood.

Speaking on their website, the Krazy Kat Theatre Company describes the show as 'a funny, surreal, picaresque 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.

'Come to the Overworld and join the Kats in this fast-moving madcap musical adventure. With puppets, 10 super songs and daft dances, fully integrated Sign Language and showcasing Krazy Kat’s mastery of visual storytelling, it’s bristling with creativity, humour and catchy chunes…'.

The show is 60 minutes long and is ideal for ages 3- 7, their families and friends, and is suitable for both deaf and hearing audiences.
