An out of this world adventure for ages 3-8 and their families, a co-production from The Wardrobe Ensemble and The Wardrobe Theatre – as seen at National Theatre!

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?!

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

“Places the children at the very heart of this brilliantly involving show.”
★★★★ Time Out

“Boasts as much improvisational elan as Showstoppers! and more genuine interaction with the audience than most shows on the fringe.”
The Guardian

“A rare find… delightful for children and adults alike.”
Younger Theatre

“A healthy dose of unselfconscious silly fun.”
Broadway World
