David Baddiel's ANIMALCOLM The Musical

Canolfan y Celfyddydau Aberystwyth Arts Centre

EBRILL 25 APRIL

Mae’n bleser gan Story Pocket Theatre gyhoeddi bydd AniMalcolm, sy’n seiliedig ar y llyfr plant poblogaidd gan David Baddiel, yn dod i Ganolfan y Celfyddydau Aberystwyth ar Ebrill 25ain fel rhan o daith Brydeinig sy’n premiere yng Ngŵyl Ffrinj Caeredin yn 2018.

Nid yw Malcolm yn hoffi anifeiliaid, sy’n broblem gan fod ei deulu wrth eu boddau gyda nhw. I ddweud y gwir, mae eu tŷ’n llawn o anifeiliaid anwes o bob siâp a maint. Yr unig obaith iddo yw’r trip ysgol Blwyddyn Chwech, hynny yw nes iddo fod ar y bws, ar ei ffordd i…fferm. Ond ar daith ysgol heb ei ail, mae’n dechrau dod i ddeall anifeiliaid yn well na neb. Bydd e’n diweddu’r un fath ag o hyd? Oherwydd weithiau’r peth anoddach i fod yw eich hun.

Story Pocket Theatre are delighted to announce that AniMalcolm, based on the bestselling children’s book by David Baddiel, will play at Aberystwyth Arts Centre on April 25th as part of a major UK tour and following a smash-hit premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2018.

Malcolm doesn’t like animals, which is a problem because his family are wild about them. In fact their house is full of pets of all shapes and sizes. The only bright spot on the horizon is the Year Six school trip, until there he is on the bus, heading to… a farm. But on a school trip like no other, Malcolm begins to understand animals more deeply than anyone. Will he end up the same as before? Because sometimes the hardest thing to become is yourself.

Sioe gerdd fywiog, llawn egni a hollol ddoniol gan y gwobrwyiedig Story Pocket Theatre, mae AniMalcolm yn cyfuno theatr gorfforol, pypedau a’r arddull adrodd hanes rhagorol y cwmni i ddod a stori hudolus a doniol David Baddiel i’r llwyfan.


Mae David Baddiel yn gomedïwr gwobrwyiedig, awdur, sgriptiwr, cyfarwyddwr a chyflwynydd teledu sy’n adnabyddus ar gyfer ei waith gyda Newman and Baddiel, Fantasy Football, Baddiel & Skinner Unplanned a'i sengl rhif un platinwm Three Lions. Mae David wedi ysgrifennu pedwar llyfr i blant sydd wedi gwerthu dros filiwn o gopïau, yn ogystal â phedwar nofel clodfawr i oedolion a’r ffilm The Infidel. Wnaeth sioe stand-yp diweddaraf David, My Family: Not the Sitcom, cael ei berfformio gyntaf yn y Menier Chocolate Factory cyn mynd ymlaen am 15 wythnos yn y West End.

A vibrant, energetic and gloriously funny musical from the award-winning Story Pocket Theatre, AniMalcolm combines physical theatre, puppetry and the company’s outstanding storytelling style to bring David Baddiel’s magical and wonderfully comic story to the stage.

David Baddiel is an award-winning comedian, author, screenwriter, director and television presenter known for his work with Newman and Baddiel, Fantasy Football, Baddiel & Skinner Unplanned and his platinum number one single Three Lions. David has written four children’s books which have now sold over one million copies, as well as four critically-acclaimed adult novels and the hit film The Infidel. David’s latest stand-up show, My Family: Not the Sitcom, premiered at the Menier Chocolate Factory before going on to run for 15 weeks in the West End.
