Kidz R Us was a finalist in the Best Arts Project category of the 2010 National Lottery Awards and is a recipient of the prestigious Queen's Award for Voluntary Service.

“Top performances!”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

If your visiting St Ives this summer you simply must include a visit to this theatre group. I've seen two of their shows so far and both were of an excellent standard.
Honk! Is the musical of the Ulgy Duckling and aimed at younger audiences. I went with a friend who is over 80 and I'm no spring chicken but we had a wonderful time, there are lots of gags in it that sail over the top of the heads of littles one but leave you grinning like a goon! This show is performed by a cast who are either ex 'kidz' or presently volunteering, the talent on stage is amazing! Easily good enough for any West End or Broadway production.
I also saw Les Mis this week. The cast from this show are all 20 years older younger and tell the story so well, and again the standard of singing here makes you forget you are listening to young people. There were moments when tears threatened to fall and then,the whole audience stood at the end. Really an amazing night out!

“Great performance!”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

My son has just seen the 'Wizard of Oz' with a friend and he has thoroughly enjoyed it! It was a very professional play and my son could not believe that the actors were school children. Well done!!

“First time of many ...”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

Kidz is a little misleading for what is one of the most professional shows you are likely to see. Colour, drama, excitment and emotion all performed by young people from St Ives, many from difficult backgrounds - brilliant !

“I have seen many productions - You will not be disapointed”
Reviewed 29 April 2013

I have seen many productions by KIDZ R US and none of them have never been disappointed, a great variety of productions from Les Mis to Honk, there is something for everyone.

A great evening out and a must for every visitor to St Ives and the surrounding area.
