More about

The Crocodile

Ivan, a struggling actor, is angry with the world, the Tsar, and the zoo his best friend Zack has brought him to:

“This is what’s stealing my bloody audience! It’s a knife to the nuts bringing me here, it really is…”

Zack feels it’s time for him to move on from acting and get a real job … like making cushions. But, Ivan’s not in it for money or fame; he’s in it for the art!

That is, until he gets up close and personal with a crocodile …



Collaboration: our key fundamental principal. We believe in a community of artists and audiences working together to create diverse and, hopefully, magical theatre.

About tidal Town Theatre

I started Tidal Town Theatre in 2018 as an excuse to put on my own theatre shows! As an actress, I know a lot of performers – actors, singers, dancers, and musicians – and a lot of people who are passionate about the arts. What I saw was a dedicated group of people – a real community – of artists and audiences working together to create wonderful experiences – and wonderful memories. Bringing together all of our passion, skill, and love, and riding that wave together from one performance to the next. I realised that when performers and performance-lovers work together, sometimes magical things can happen.

We’re interested in people. In communities. We want to entertain and, hopefully, inspire. We want to tell magical stories. And, more than anything, we want to help make incredible experiences, together.

Awareness Video:

Dementia with Lewy Bodies

In 2018, to help support The Lewy Body Society, Tidal Town Theatre filmed this awareness video.

Dementia with Lewy Bodies or DLB is the second most common form of neurodegenerative dementia, affecting approximately 100,000 people in the UK alone. It’s also one of the least known. For more about DLB, please visit The Lewy Body Society.

The video was shot on zero budget, using borrowed equipment, and relying on the help of many, many big-hearted individuals and organisations. We’re very grateful to everyone who was involved. In our small way, we hope we can help raise awareness about this terrible disease.
