Topsy Turvy Theatre Presents

Christopher Nibble in Topsy Turvy

Written and illustrated by Charlotte Middleton and adapted for the stage by Claire Alizon Hills, Topsy Turvy Theatre, the company who brought you Ruby Flew Too! and Isabel’s Well, proudly present the charming Christopher Nibble in a tale of dandelion daring-do!

The guinea pigs of Dandeville love munching dandelion leaves so much that slowly but surely dandelions are disappearing from all over town.

Christopher Nibble knows that crunch time has come when there is just one dandelion left – but will this plucky little guinea pig have the flower power to save the day?

Written especially for children aged 2-7 (and their big people too) and told with Topsy Turvy Theatre’s own blend of energetic storytelling, handmade puppets, original music and stunning scenery, Christopher Nibble is an uplifting story of one guinea pig’s selfless undertaking to help halt the disappearance of the delicious dandelion forever!

Endorsement from Author Charlotte Middleton

“Topsy Turvy Theatre have turned Christopher Nibble into magical life in this entertaining, humorous theatre show.  The home town of Dandeville, is a beautifully crafted stage set, with patchwork hills, a miniature café , a library and plenty of delicious dandelion leaves . There’s music, dancing and singing for all.  My daughter (age 4) was very keen to watch two consecutive shows! I couldn’t be more delighted with the adaptation of my story. “


“A warm-hearted adaptation of the well-known children’s book about a plucky guinea pig – Christopher Nibble. The two performers from Topsy Turvy theatre were lovable and their friendly personalities carried the show.  The end of the show was magical and, as they say in the play, “dandastic” – *** Nelly Lewis, Broadway Baby

“[The performers] had good boundless energy, jolly and quizzical facial expressions throughout, and a clear sense of timing and choreography” – Jonathan Brown Fringe Review, Fringe Recommended.
