Have you ever dreamt of seeing a dinosaur?
Meeting a Roman or an Ancient Egyptian?
Sharing tea time with a robot from the future?
Join The Wardrobe Ensemble and The Wardrobe Theatre for a thrilling journey through time where you take the steering wheel!

Following on from the stellar success of The Star Seekers, comes a new mission, The Time Seekers – an inspiring, warm and audience driven children’s show that journeys through history, exploring the people and places of our past and future with songs, humour and lots of audience interaction. Alph, Betty and Gammo need Bristol’s Time Seekers to help us complete our latest mission and help answer one of the greatest questions of all time – what is a Diplodocus’s favourite bedtime story?

“Honestly one of the best pieces of family theatre I’ve ever seen! I laughed so hard it hurt and the kids were utterly engaged throughout. The way the cast incorporated the kids’ ideas into the show was inspired and an utter delight to behold. It takes some doing to create a family show of such quality, imagination and constant laugh out loudness.”
Audience Feedback

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

“We danced, we shouted, we sang, we laughed, we pelted the stage with newspaper… A stellar example of everything that is good about family theatre.”
Weston-Super-Mum on The Star Seekers

“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.”
