An Exciting Announcement

Thanks to the continued support of the St Ives Town Deal, Kidz R Us is embarking on Phase 2 of our fantastic journey to refurbish our beloved theatre. As a small charity dedicated to youth theatre, this endeavour allows us to enhance our space and create an even more vibrant hub for creativity and artistic expression. The upcoming refurbishment includes an extension to introduce a brand-new café space, fostering a welcoming environment for our patrons.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be handing over the reins to our skilled contractors, marking the beginning of this transformative project. This marks a thrilling start to the new year for our organization, and we can’t wait to welcome you back at the end of the year for our reopening, just in time for our much-anticipated Christmas show. Thank you for your ongoing support – here’s to a even brighter and more inspiring future for Kidz R Us!

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

To celebrate 30 years of outstanding youth theatre at Kidz R Us we are taking it back to where it all started with Joseph. To help us celebrate we have invited back some of our former members to join us at the world renowned Minack Theatre for this colourful and vibrant production. Follow Joseph through this wild journey of betrayal, love, acceptance and revelation underpinned by the outstanding music and lyrics of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.

Tickets are on general release from 5th February through the Minack Theatre website

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.
