The Twits - Pictures from the first half of the matinee show Ormskirk Civic Hall May 19th 2012

The matinee show at the Ormskirk Civic Hall on Saturday afternoon 19th May 2012 was packed with children and parents, who were treated to a lively and colourful performance, filled with comedy, vibrant costumes and energetic dance routines from a hugely talented group of artistes, both young and not quite so young.

The Twits is a humorous children's book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake. It was written in 1979, and first published in 1980. Mr. and Mrs. Twit are two ugly, smelly, nasty, stupid people who spend their lives playing nasty tricks on each other. They also enjoy being cruel to animals, which they do by luring birds to glue-smothered trees so they can be baked into bird pie, and tormenting their pet monkeys, Muggle-Wump and his family, by getting them to stand upside down, one on top of the other. They hate children, and Mrs. Twit often carries a walking stick in her right hand that she uses to hit children and animals. Source Wikipedia
