Thu 5 Dec, 2024 – Sat 4 Jan, 2025- Derby Theatre


Hiccup Theatre, in collaboration with
Derby Theatre and Polka Theatre will bring audiences age 3+, and their families and friends, yet another festive treat for Christmas 2024, Chicken Licken

Chicken Licken is a cherished and charming tale of a little chicken who believes the sky is falling and the world is coming to an end…but they soon realise that a foolish fear is nothing more than a falling acorn….From the same team that brought you Three Billy Goats Gruff, The Emperor’s New Clothes, Little Red, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Gingerbread Man, audiences can expect beautiful puppetry, fantastic storytelling, amazing live music and original songs.

All performances include integrated BSL, creative captions and integrated audio description.
