Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

BLOOMSBURY Theatre has three shows for children in its Autumn 2007 season, beginning with Horrible Histories – from Monday, October 1 to Saturday, October 13.

Using actors and groundbreaking 3D special effects, The Awful Egyptians and The Ruthless Romans are guaranteed to thrill adults and children alike as they bring historical facts and figures to life on stage.

Tickets: £16 (adults), £11 (children), £13.50 (concessions), £48 (family of four).

Horrible Histories is followed – on Saturday, October 25 (at noon and 3pm) – by Singing Kettle.

Arriving on board a Stagecoach, the Singing Kettle make a welcome return to Bloomsbury as they ride into Kettle Creek, where they must find their missing Kettles before High Noon.

For this “rootin’ tootin’, all action, crazy Wild West Show”, audience members are invited to dress as Cowboys or Cowgirls.

Tickets: £9, £32 (family of four).

And finally – from Tuesday, December 11, 2007 to Saturday, January 26, 2008 – comes Danny The Champion Of The World.

Danny lives in a caravan with his Dad, the most marvellous and exciting Dad any boy ever had. But his father has a secret! When night comes, he poaches pheasants from Hazell’s Wood.

Mr Hazell, the biggest landowner in the district, wants to evict them both and the battle is quickly on to save their home. But how can one little boy defeat a rich and powerful landowner? Danny has a plan – and soon he and his Dad are caught up in a thrilling and remarkable adventure!

Tickets: £17.50 (adults), £10 (children), £12 (concessions), £49.50 (family of four).
