All aboard for the STARLIGHT EXPRESS! Experience the thrill of the fastest-moving musical of the universe and the captivating story of Rusty, the young steam engine, and his love for Pearl. For 27 years now, the STARLIGHT EXPRESS has been racing its way through the theatre built especially for it in Bochum. In that time, the STARLIGHT EXPRESS has played host 15 million spectators in the heart of the Ruhr district. Reason enough for an entry in the Guinness Book of Records!

The starlight express in Bochum is the most impressive musical I've ever seen. They perform on roller skates, act and sing at the same time. Not to forget to mention the bar staff who made that day with their great service to an unforgettable one.

We had a group of 10. Great time for all ages. Papa stole the show with his amazing voice!!! Show is 98% in German, so read up on story beforehand if you do not speak the language.

My friend who is a performer said he only knows of one time they did the show in English, and that was for a tour group. There are none planned right now.
