Summer Spectacular at City Varieties

City Varieties' Summer Spectacular programme is bursting at the seams with fantastic events for young people of all ages.

Youth Theatre Presents: The Addams Family | Fri 29th & Sat 30th July (shows at 7.30pm plus a Saturday 2pm matinee)
The fun begins with the CV Youth Theatre Company's 5th full-scale musical - The Addams Family! The delightfully twisted Wednesday Addams has grown up and fallen in love with an astonishingly regular young man. He’s coming round for dinner, but can everyone’s favourite morbid household pretend to be “normal” for just one evening?
Family Activities | 0-7 Years | Tues 9th & 16th August (10.30am-12pm)
Music, movement and play sessions for the whole family. Come and create music and dance to your own beat with early years music specialists, Tiny Tempo.
Rewind/Remix Summer School | 7-11 Years | Mon 22nd - Fri 26th August (10am-3pm everyday)
City Varieties and Duck Egg Theatre Co. have a whole week of drama, music, dance, circus, and more prepared for youngsters looking to pick up new skills, resulting in a performance for participants’ friends and family on the final day! We’re also offering a limited number of technical places for those looking to discover the secrets of backstage.
The showcase performance will be for an invited audience on Fri 26th August 2pm-3pm.
