Have you ever dreamt of flying to the moon?
Meeting an alien?
Becoming an astronaut?
Join star seekers Alph, Betty and Gammo on a journey through space where you take the steering wheel.

Inspired by our childhood wonder of the universe, The Wardrobe Ensemble and The Wardrobe Theatre have created a unique theatrical experience for children. The Star Seekers is an interactive show that explores the limitless majesty of galaxies, the solar system, shooting stars and planets through songs, silliness and anti-gravity antics. We need Bristol’s Star Seekers to help us complete our mission and answer one of the greatest unanswered questions of the universe: What do astronauts really have in their packed lunch boxes?!

After the success of previous family shows Eliza & The Wild Swans and Edgar & The Land Of Lost, as well as international hit productions Riot, 33, 1972: The Future of Sex and Eloise & The Curse of The Golden Whisk, The Wardrobe Ensemble return with their popular show for young audiences, in collaboration with The Wardrobe Theatre.

“Appeals to a child’s wide-eyed wonder and hunger for exploration… It’s silly, sparkling stuff.”
★★★★ The Stage

“We danced, we shouted, we sang, we laughed, we pelted the stage with newspaper asteroids… A stellar example of everything that is good about family theatre.”

“A uniquely collaborative adventure in which many of the story’s twists and turns are supplied by the audience members and improvised, with impressive creativity and quicksilver pace… get pulled into the irresistible gravitational field of this beautifully wide-eyed, enthusiastic and good-humoured show.”
