Greetings once more – what a pleasant surprise,
Is it that time of year again?  Cor, how time flies!

Down in the village of Old Windy Bottom, a huge black cloud has appeared in the skies above, much to the annoyance of good Fairy Sugardust.  And now the children have started to disappear, spreading fear amongst the villagers, whilst Piccalilli, the Wicked Witch, seems to be in her element.  She gloats …

“Once happiness reigned here – that made me defiant,
So I cast me a spell which created the Giant.
His name’s Buster Gut-Bucket – bad as they come,
For when he is cross, he shouts Fee fi fo fum!”

And so, the scene is set for our story of adventure, romance and heroism.  For shortly, as you will see, Simple Simon is tricked by a pedlar, the Princess is abducted by the Giant and Jack, the son of Dame Dotty Dimple, heads for the skies in an attempt to rescue his sweetheart.

Will Jack reach the Princess?  Will the Giant set her free?
We can tell you no more – just sit back, wait and see …

  • Well, that was amazing. Having watched Aladdin last night I was blown away by the young talent on show, every member of the cast from the ages of 6- 19 gave it a hundred percent. The performance was superb bordering on professional. It was beautiful  with amazing costumes and fabulous scenery, with one or two very magical surprises. Don’t hesitate if you have a family get them down there, so worth it. Great evening out, loved it.

  • Our House is another great show that is a must see this summer. We were blown away by he enthusiasm and skill of all the cast. As soon as the band started we knew we was in for a lively show. We thoroughly recommend this to everyone.

  • What another fantastic performance from Kidz R Us. You are all such a talented group of actors, dancers and singers. I came away thinking that you can never ‘ top that performance ‘ but I am wrong each time. You just get better and better and last night’s performance of Our House was just brilliant. Made me laugh and I even had a tear in my eye ( much to my daughter’ embarrassment) at the end. Looking forward to your next show.
