Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical (Sing-along) (PG)

Dir: Matthew Wachus | 117 mins

Matilda Wormwood is a little girl with big curiosity, a sharp mind and a vivid imagination - and the worst parents in the world.

While her parents content themselves with trashy TV and dodgy money-making schemes, she loves to lose herself in the pages of her beloved books. Where they are loud, selfish and unkind she is a quiet observer, thinking up small and cheeky acts of rebellion and revenge.

On meeting her inspirational teacher Miss Honey, Matilda is encouraged and begins conjuring her own fantastical tales. Excited to attend Crunchem Hall, Matilda is surprised to find the school is an ominous and oppressive place led by the huge and villainous Miss Trunchbull.

Filled with an overwhelming sense of justice, Matilda dares to take a stand for what is right and teach Trunchbull a lesson she won't forget.

‘We are revolting children, living in revolting times! Tim Minchin’s genius lyrics make this a smash hit, with Alisha Weir, for all ages. See you at the singalong version’ Metro

The Amazing Bubble Man

Louis Pearl thrills with the art, magic, science and fun of bubbles.

Louis Pearl has been thrilling audiences around the world for over 30 years with the art, magic, science and fun of bubbles. He is a favorite at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where he has enjoyed twelve years of sell-out success.

Louis explores the breath-taking dynamics of bubbles, combining comedy and artistry with audience participation and enough spellbinding bubble tricks to keep everyone mesmerized. From square bubbles, bubbles inside bubbles, fog-filled bubbles, giant bubbles, bubble volcanoes, tornados and trampolines to people inside bubbles, the Amazing Bubble Man conjures shrieks of laughter and gasps of amazement from all ages. 

 Most shows will also feature multi instrumentalist Jet Black Pearl accompanying Louis with bubbly music to double your pleasure.

"Greatest bubble show on Earth." SFGate.com

"It's a fantastic show. Louis Pearl playfully forms bubbles beyond imagination, and engages the audience with his easygoing nonverbal slapstick."

"Louis Pearl - aka The Amazing Bubble Man - truly deserves his title. Most of the show is accompanied by gasps and awes...and that's just the adults. Kids can be heard giggling with excitement."

"This show captivated its young audience and the adults loved it as well. Highly recommended."  British Theater Guide.

“The show is one giant, joyous caper” The Wee Review

The eight year-old seated beside this reviewer summed it up neatly during the show, proclaiming after one nifty manoeuvre, ‘he sure is the amazing bubble man.’ The Wee Review

The Not So Grimm Twins

A (f)un-expected family adventure, where fairytales really do come true…’

Roll up one and all, to hear the fabulous Grimm Brother’s fairytales like never
Before…

Meet world-famous twins Jake and Will Grimm, as they tumble from their magical wagon brimful of stories collected from every inch of the world - from Rapunzel to Red Riding Hood. Behold as your favourite tales are re-spun by our storytelling duo (oh, and their little sister Lottie too!).

But sometimes even familiar fairytales can take a turn for the unexpected, and our heroes will need all the help they can get to defeat the creatures of their own creation and save the world!

Performed by three actor-musicians, featuring original live music and puppetry, this production is suitable for the whole family, though some elements may be best enjoyed by those aged 4 and above.
