About the show
Winner of Off West End Award (OFFIE) for ages 0-7 in 2016!
★★★★ ‘Utterly dazzling. Rumbustious, exhilarating dance theatre.’ The Guardian
★★★★ 'Masterfully delivered' The Stage
We are thrilled to announce that after 9 years of delighting audiences from the West End to New York and Beijing, Boing! is returning home to Bristol Old Vic for Christmas 2019.
This exhilarating piece of dance-theatre captures the delirious excitement of two boys waiting for Father Christmas to arrive on the most magical night of the year.
There are beds to be jumped on, pillows to be fought with, seas to be sailed…On this most extraordinary night, let your imagination soar right up to the stars.
This show is guranteed to get your feet tingling and your head spinning with a whirl of colourful images and playful sounds.
A co-production with Bristol Old Vic.
For ages 2-7
