Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Galoshes of Fortune, The Wellies is a fun and immersive story about magic, splashing, and being and being careful what you wish for.

Milly is bored. She’s stuck at home; it’s raining outside, and she’s played with all her toys. She finds an amazing pair of shiny talking wellies with a special secret power; every time you jump in a puddle, the splash you to any time and place you desire…

The Wellies takes its audience on an adventure propelled by kids desires and passions, and the delight of splashing in a puddle! Every place the wellies takes us has a different feel and engages the children’s senses in a new way. It centres on an imaginative and brave central character, and the journey she goes on with her new welly friends, both relishing an adventure, and appreciating home.
