Epstein Theatre presents a season of children’s entertainment for Autumn 2015
The Epstein Theatre has plenty to keep children entertained this autumn with four fabulous kids’ shows.
And you won’t have to worry about your little ones being bored during the half term holiday as three of the shows are being staged during the October break.
Kicking things off, the Milkshake! Live Party Party rolls into the Epstein Theatre on Sunday 11th October starring all of your youngster’s favourite characters such as Pip from Pip Ahoy, The Bananas in Pyjamas and Milkshake’s very own Milkshake Monkey, as well as two of Milkshake’s presenters.
As the preparations for Milkshake Monkey’s surprise birthday party get underway, all the guests are busy with their very special party jobs. But what happens when Milkshake Monkey disappears? The presenter will need the audience’s help to find him in time for the party but will he be late for his own birthday? The show features brand new songs, classic favourites and funky dance routines, plus plenty of laughter, bags of audience interaction and bucket loads of fun for all the family too.
Next up is an adventure for only the most daring boys and girls as they join Captain Cut-Throat on his quest to prove that there are no such things as monsters on Saturday 24th & Sunday 25th October.
Set sail with the villainous Captain and his fearsome crew in the thrilling musical adventure Here Be Monsters as they journey through monster-infested waters in search of a mysterious island crammed with jewels and gem stones. The Captain is certain that “monsters simply don’t exist,” but as they near the island and the mist closes in around them, his crew are not so sure.
Next up is something slightly softer and cuddlier than monsters, as The People’s Theatre Company arrives at the Epstein to teach children all about How The Koala Learnt to Hug.
Koalas are the cuddliest critters but just how did they learn to hug? There’s only one way to find out so come and hear Karen The Koala tell her story in this fun filled family musical, written especially for parents to enjoy with their children filled with a host of wild characters including Natascha the Witch and the reggae beavers for some great stories, sing along songs, superb games and first class hugging. Based on the book How The Koala Learnt To Hug by Steven Lee, this charming production is back on tour for its fifth anniversary.
And finally Starbright Entertainment invite you to follow the Second star on the right and straight on till morning to come see the ageless classic Peter Pan – The Musical on Thursday 29th & Friday 30th October.
A spectacular musical adaptation of the beloved tale about the boy who never grows up, let your imagination take you to Neverland with Peter and Wendy meeting Lost Boys, Indians and the villainous Captain Hook – not forgetting his silly sidekick Smee. Why not add to the fun and dress as your favourite character? There will be a special prize for the best dressed and everyone will have the chance to meet the cast after the show. With enchanting songs, plenty of fun and laughter and a sprinkling of fairy dust, this is the perfect way to make literature come alive for the whole family.
So come on down and treat your little ones to a season of family entertainment they’ll never forget.
