RISSMANN Sir Scallywag and the Golden Underpants

KORKY PAUL – Illustrator

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 other pieces including extracts from Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks, Sir Scallywag features lots of audience participation and illustrated projections (including a brief appearance of the King’s bare bottom!). This laugh-out-loud musical adventure is by composer Paul Rissmann, based on the book by Giles Andreae, illustrated by Korky Paul and published by Puffin, Penguin Books Ltd.
