Well done to the whole cast and crew for a fast paced and energetic performance. The live band was a pleasant addition though if anything the sound of some of the quieter singers could have been improved but the costumes and choreography was very impressive...More

We took our Rainbows and Brownies to see their production of Cinderella. Thoroughly enjoyed this, as good as some professional Pantos that we have seen. A brilliant, talented Theatre Company. They deserve our support.

Kids R Us always put on a fabulous show which belies the ages of its performers. Cinderella was no different with great performances across the board, especially the Ugly Sisters who were both completely hilarious. Hard to believe they were only 16 or so! This...More

Whilst the word 'Kidz' is in the name of the company, this is great quality theatre suitable for everybody. The production we saw, Disney's The Jungle Book, demonstrated a high level of professionalism from the cast that was far beyond what one would expect from...More
