At Kidz R Us we look forward to providing entertaining shows that you will remember for years to come. Look at the list below to see our upcoming shows.

Elf The Musical JR

 Elf The Musical JR. is a must-produce holiday musical that can easily become an annual tradition for any theatre. Based on the cherished New Line Cinema hit, Elf JR. features songs by Tony Award-nominees, Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin, with a book by Tony Award-winners, Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin.

Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his stepbrother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make every young performer embrace his or her “inner elf” with plenty of large ensemble numbers featuring elves and (New Yorkers) of every type.

    Testimonials

    WOW We thought we were seeing a professional show the quality of this performance was outstanding the costumes were beautiful and the whole theatre experience was magical.  The snow queen was the most beautiful character I have ever seen and boy could she sing.  The Granny had us in stitches all evening our sides ache today, the whole performance was worthy of a professional stage we loved it and will be back next year.  Well done

    AUDIENCE MEMBER, SNOW QUEEN (DECEMBER 2018)

    I’ve been visiting Kidz for over 20 years, ever since I was a young child – I can’t explain how incredible the performances are every time! I have never been to a bad performance – the talent of every child on stage is evident from the opening note, and it’s fantastic to see the performers grow every year.

    We saw the Snow Queen last night, and you could tell the entire audience had a fantastic time, from ages 2 to 92!

    A trip to St Ives isn’t complete without going to Kidz R Us.
