Upcoming performances at The Place Theatre

Cultural Provider The Place Theatre in Bedford have a number of performances in May suitable for children and young people.

Little Soldier Productions presents Journey to the Impossible on 28th to 31st May at 7pm during the summer half term.

Journey in to the Impossible at The Place Theatre Bedford

Did you own a Walkman, play Donkey Kong or watch the Goonies? We made this show for you (oh, and for your kids).

The year is 1982, and three kids are in trouble. They’ve opened a door onto a parallel dimension: the city of Vernopolis, where no one has fun anymore. By means of walkie talkies and magical bandanas, you’ll be taken with them through the Improbable and the Unlikely, via the Intriguing and the Unethical – returning not much older, hardly any wiser, but glad you went.

Along the way expect a play within a play, epic songs, hip hop, a dash of Spielberg and Shakespeare, and other incompatible styles in this unashamedly 80s sci-fi coming-of-age adventure for all the family.

“Smart, fast, and very, very funny, Journey to the Impossible is an uncynical fever dream of childhood nostalgia” – Exeunt
