An Exciting Announcement

‘Kidz R Us are excited to announce that our planning application for the refurbishment works and extension to create a café here at the theatre have been granted consent by Cornwall Council. Whilst the main project is not due to commence until autumn this year, Phase 1 of these works to the roof and font façade of our beloved building have started this week! Part of these works will involve the erection of a scaffold, however, we will still be running rehearsals for our upcoming shows, The wider refurbishment works and new café is made possible thanks to funding from the @StivesTownDeal.

The team are looking forward to unveiling the refurbished façade and new signage in the spring this year ready for our summer season.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you to all our supporters/performers and parents that have visited the theatre and performed in our productions in 2022 – here is to an exciting 2023 and beyond.’

Les Miserables

The second, set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice, and redemption – a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Featuring one of the greatest scores of all time, with thrilling and beloved songs including “I Dreamed A Dream,” “On My Own,” “Stars,” “Bring Him Home,” “One Day More,” “Do You Hear the People Sing,” and many more, this epic and uplifting story has become one of the most celebrated musicals in theatrical history. 

Jean Valjean has lost everything. After nineteen years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his sister’s family, starting life over as a convict is proving impossible. But when a fated encounter with a Bishop teaches him mercy and redemption, Valjean vows to devote his life to good. It proves harder than he thought. Raising a rescued orphan in a country wrapped up in a student-led French revolution effort, while being hunted by ruthless policeman Javert, it’s all Valjean can do to keep his head above water.

Extremely professional and entertaining show. Probably one of the best shows I’ve seen in Cornwall. Very well cast, the boy playing Elf was outstanding and all the cast should be highly commended. Costumes and scenery were first class. Highly recommend to everyone.
