Welcome to KIDZ R US!

We look forward to welcoming you to St Ives Theatre, home of Kidz R Us. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show – and if you’re impressed by what you see on stage, tell someone all about it. 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.

 

COVID UPDATE:
Cancellation:  It is with great regret that after discussions and announcements by government and scientists, the Trustees have no real alternative but to make the decision to postpone our Kidz R Us Panto, Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates!  This has been a really difficult decision for us but one we feel necessary in order to protect the health and safety of our Kidz, volunteers, and visitors.  We are very sorry to disappoint so many of you.  Our Kidz have been working so hard and we hope to perform it for you as soon as we can and as circumstances will allow!
All ticket holders will be contacted by Ticketsource and those who booked online should receive a refund within 14 days.
For those who booked direct with the booking office at Kidz R Us, you will need to email us at info@kidzrus.net, for a refund.  As we are a charity, if anyone feels they would prefer to consider this as a donation to the charity, that would be much appreciated.
Lets hope next year may be better.

Calendar Girls the Musical

The death of a much loved husband prompts a group of ordinary women in a small Yorkshire Women’s Institute to do an extraordinary thing. Blasting away all preconceptions of what it is to be in a women’s institute, they decide to do an artistic nude calendar to raise money for charity. Upturning preconceptions is a dangerous business and none of them expect the emotional and personal ramifications, but gradually the making of the fabulous and funny calendar brings each woman unexpectedly into flower.

The true story of the Calendar Girls launched a global phenomenon, a million copycat calendars, a record breaking movie, stage play and musical written by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow which coined the term “craughing”  – the act of crying and laughing at the same time.

With unforgettable songs, every performance continues to add to the millions already raised for charity and also prove that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman.

    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.
