Based on the popular CBeebies preschool show, Twirlywoos Live! features beloved characters Toodloo, Great BigHoo, Chickedy, Chick and Peekaboo, who will delight preschoolers and their families with mischief, music and plenty of surprises as they embark on a new adventure onboard their Big Red Boat.

“The Twirlywoos have captured the hearts of preschoolers across the UK, and with the popularity of the brand’s TV show and toys, it was a natural next step to collaborate with a seasoned producer like MEI Theatrical to create a new stage show,” said Tom Roe, Commercial Director, DHX Brands. “Twirlywoos Live! is a wonderful extension of the Twirlywoos brand, providing children and families with yet another avenue to connect with these beloved characters and forge lasting memories.”


“We’re very excited to have been chosen to create a live experience with the ever-curious Twirlywoos,” said Nick Larkin, Creative Producer at MEI.  “Silly, fun and always full of surprises, Twirlywoos Live! will enable us to engage with and entertain preschoolers. Watching little ones with so much excitement and wonder on their faces is part of the magic of working in children’s theatre, and we can’t wait to see the magic happen.”


Twirlywoos Live! is brought to the stage by MEI Theatrical, whose recent productions include Sarah and Duck Live on Stage (Polka Theatre and UK Tour) and The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show (West End, Dubai, Bahrain, UK Tour). It is written by Zoe Bourn, who has brought to life some of the world’s best-loved children’s titles including Fireman Sam Live! and Thomas and Friends.

ABOUT TWIRLYWOOS


Originally commissioned by CBeebies, Twirlywoos is enjoyed by kids on more than 40 linear and streaming platforms around the world. Twirlywoos is a top-rated show on CBeebies.


Twirlywoos is devised and executive produced by Anne Wood with lead creative and writer, Steve Roberts and producer, Chris Wood.


Twirlywoos features laugh-out-loud child-centric humour which encourages preschoolers to think for themselves, and gain confidence in their own perceptions of the world. Through the show, young audiences are able to reinforce their understanding as they grow and develop, becoming active and inquisitive within their own lives.


The Twirlywoos are four small, bird-like characters who are inquisitive, enthusiastic and always looking to learn something new about the world.


Ever curious, they seek adventure and fun wherever they go. Whether in the real world or on their big red boat, they love to hide, imitate and be surprised as they discover new things. The show has been developed with a commitment to watching how children interact and develop, and each episode creates spaces for preschoolers to make their own connections, which aids their learning.
