GUESS How Much I Love You is the best selling children's book by Sam McBratney’s and it will be live on stage in Southampton this half term.

The UK’s brand new live adaptation, featuring puppets, live music and interactive play, comes to Nuffield Southampton Theatres Campus (NST Campus) on Monday February 12 until Saturday February 17.

This playful story of love and nature follows the much-loved Nutbrown Hares, from the best-selling Guess How Much I Love You and I Love You All Year Round collection, as they leap off the page and onto the stage, taking children aged 2 and up on an enchanting journey through all four seasons.

Executive creative producer for Selladoor, David Hutchinson, said: “Adapted faithfully from the household favourite book, Guess How Much I Love You is an affectionate, gentle and interactive story that both parents and children can enjoy together as the perfect introduction into live theatre."

This family favourite is brought to life by Selladoor Family (James And The Giant Peach, Seussical and The Owl And The Pussycat) and ABA International Touring UK (What the Ladybird Heard, Hairy Maclary and Friends, and Shark in the Park).

It is directed by Anna Fox, with music composed by Harry Sever and movement by Lucie Pankhurst. Sound design is by Yvonne Gilberta and lighting design by Charlie Morgan Jones.

The cast includes Penny Dyer as Little Nutbrown Hare, Matthew Crouzieres as Big Nutbrown Hare and Emily-Jane Ashford as Mother Nature.
