Okay, so yes I love the Geronimo Stilton Books, the graphic novels, the Thea Stilton books, in fact I think the whole franchise is pretty awesome. So you can perhaps imagine my surprise when I stumbled across the little piece of info that the first of the Kingdom of Fantasy books has been turned into a musical. No I don’t know how close to the english book version the musical is but quite honestly who cares when it looks like this much fun.
As far as I know an english version hasn’t been done yet, so please excuse the non english clip, but still it gives you a good idea of what it would be like.
In case you missed it this looks awesome. Would love to see this. They have done some amazingly innovative stuff to bring this to life.
If you are in Melbourne or one of its later stops I’m sure it will be a great night out.
