About Us

Award-winning children’s theatre company Les Petits was established in 2013 as the children’s arm of critically acclaimed parent company Les Enfants Terribles (ALICE’S ADVENTURES UNDERGROUND, THE TRENCH, THE TERRIBLE INFANTS, THE VAUDEVILLIANS). Using well-known and loved children’s literature, we aim to take stories from the page and bring them to life on the stage in creative and exciting ways.   

The company is run by James Seager and Oliver Lansley and has become known for its striking design aesthetics, use of puppetry and song and it's immersive approach to storytelling. 

Our work includes CAPTAIN FLINN AND THE PIRATE DINOSAURS based on the popular book by Giles Andreae and Russell Ayto, our stage adaption of David Walliams' FIRST HIPPO ON THE MOON, and our critically acclaimed ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND

This year, Flinn is back! In February half term at the Southbank Centre we return with CAPTAIN FLINN AND THE PIRATE DINOSAURS: THE MAGIC CUTLASS.  All aboard for this non-stop action-packed sequel full of live music, puppetry, and dastardly dinosaurs...
