Kneehigh Asylum: The Dancing Frog


Kneehigh presents The Dancing Frog
Asylum, The Lost Gardens of Heligan

From the story by Quentin Blake
Directed by Mike Shepherd
Poor Gertrude thinks she'll never have any love or laughter again when she finds out that her husband's ship has sunk. But then she finds George - a dancing frog! Soon the duo are touring the world with their hip hop beats, spreading light and laughter everywhere they go.
“Was it a true story?
“More or less.”
“But frogs don’t really dance do they?”
“Not, normally, no.”
“And no one could really catch a frog and put it on the stage.”
“You can do all kinds of things if you need to enough.”
Based on Quentin Blake’s The Story of the Dancing Frog, Kneehigh have re-spun this beautiful tale of hope and courage – made at home in their Cornish Barns - and can’t wait to take you whisk you away on an adventure.
Suitable for all ages

Tickets are now on sale to Kneehigh Friends. Early Bird tickets will be available to all from 15 March and full price tickets on sale from 12 April.

The Asylum
Kneehigh’s Asylum is back in a new site at The Lost Gardens of Heligan and plans are afoot to create the ultimate night out. This year it’s all about breaking the rules with style, with pop-up shows, surprise acts and spontaneous events invigorating a season of world-class theatre and epic live music. 
The Asylum will run from 2 August until 22 September. Visit for further announcements or follow WeAreKneehigh on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
We try to make access to the Asylum as easy as possible for everyone, but there is no getting away from it, the Asylum is a large tent in the middle of a field. If it has been particularly rainy the site can get very wet so we advise wearing sensible shoes, as well as warm layers to evening performances as it can get a bit chilly.
All tickets for this year's Asylum are unreserved. For evening performances, access to the site will be available from 6pm, and from 2.30pm for matinees.
When you arrive on site please let our Asylum volunteers know if you require a disabled parking space.
Wheelchair users are of course welcome to the Asylum, but please ensure you book your tickets over the telephone and inform the Hall for Cornwall that you require a wheelchair space.  
When you go through to the Shopping Basket, a £1.50 Handling Fee will be added to each transaction.  Tickets are sold on a non-refundable basis unless membership is held (Membership T&C's apply).
