Join us

Now you know about Kidz R Us, would you like to get involved? The smell of the greasepaint and the roar of the crowd are waiting…

If you’re young and think you might like being in the spotlight, we have new member events in February and August, when you can join our company of performers. And if you’d like to help out behind the scenes in any way you can, we’d love to hear from you!


Take to the Stage

There are two main opportunities to join our award-winning youth theatre group. One is at the start of the new year to coincide with our February Half-Term Theatre Workshops, which offer tuition and guidance from a hand-picked group of theatre professionals from across the country. The other is at new member auditions in August, in preparation for our Christmas panto.

Become a volunteer

We’re always on the lookout for volunteers to help with all aspects of our theatre company, from selling tickets in the box office to distributing flyers, from applying stage make-up to designing and making props, from painting scenery to show lighting and sound.


  • For over two years, Kidz R Us was my home. My musical family was full of laughter, song, tap dancing, 27 costume changes a minute and not crying for Argentina while wearing silver high-heeled sandals. The person most responsible for giving me the opportunity to be truly happy being myself is Phil Barnett, without whom Kidz R Us would not exist. His ceaseless enthusiasm, talent for motivation, absolute kindness and his ability to form a group of noisy kids into an all-singing, all-dancing, all-acting sensation is matched only by his talent for convincing people that having a flower bull-whipped out of their mouth from more than 20 feet away is a brilliant idea!

  • What an absolutely outstanding show. My daughter was completely transfixed and we both laughed out loud, enjoyed every second and clapped along to the music. I would highly recommened a trip to see a show here.
