Cantilever Rights and Carrot Productions proudly present the world premiere of the animated feature film, The Amazing Maurice, with the score performed live by a full 40-piece orchestra.

This animated family film follows Maurice, a streetwise ginger cat who comes up with a money-making scam by befriending a group of self-taught talking rats. When Maurice and the rodents reach the stricken town of Bad Blintz, they meet a bookworm called Malicia and their little con soon goes down the drain. It stars Hugh Laurie (Avenue 5) as Maurice, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Malicia, David Thewlis (Wonder Woman) as Boss Man, Himesh Patel (Yesterday) as Keith, Gemma Arterton (The King’s Man) as Peaches, Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey) as The Mayor, David Tennant (Doctor Who) as Dangerous Beans, Ariyon Bakare (His Dark Materials) as Darktan, Rob Brydon (Roald & Beatrix: The Tale of the Curious Mouse) as The Pied Piper, Julie Atherton (Avenue Q) as Nourishing and YouTuber Joe Sugg as Sardines.
There will be two performances on Sunday 9th April 2023, one at 11am in aid of Cats Protection, the UK’s largest feline welfare charity, and a second one at 2.30pm, which will feature Gabrielle Aplin singing live alongside the orchestra, performing songs she wrote for the film.
