Ticket Info


Programme Information

Following the success of The Chimpanzees of Happytown and The Lion Who Wanted to Love, this laugh-out-loud musical adventure is the new children’s concert by Music in the Round’s Children’s Composer in Residence Paul Rissmann, based on the book written by Giles Andreae, illustrated by Korky Paul and published by Puffin, Penguin Books Ltd. 

King Colin wasn’t clever and King Colin wasn’t bold, but what made King Colin special were his underpants of GOLD.

When King Colin’s golden underpants go missing and the royal bottom is bared, it’s Sir Scallywag to the rescue! Brave and bold, courageous and true, he’s the perfect knight for the job… and what does it matter that he’s only six?!

Alongside pieces such as Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks and Rossini‘s William Tell OvertureSir Scallywag features lots of audience participation and illustrated projections (including a brief appearance of the King’s bare bottom!).

Concert length: 1 hour.

Recommended for children age 5+.
