Following a hugely successful run of Awful Auntie at the Bloomsbury Theatre last year , Birmingham Stage Company are delighted to return this Christmas with Billionaire Boy.
"I absolutely loved the BSC's terrific productions of Gangsta Granny and Awful Auntie so I can't wait to see their brand-new production of Billionaire Boy! It promises to be a brilliant show!"
Excellent show 8 year old granddaughter loved every minute.
Went to see this with my daughter and granddaughters aged 11 & 13. We all loved it...
My grandson asked and was so excited to se the billionaire boy! To be honest I have seen an amateur dramatics performance at the village hall better! Was this production done on a shoestring?the billionaire boy must have been in his early 30s and one old boy who played his dad played Numerous different rolls which quite honestly was a bit Creepy when he was playing a school boy, at half time my grandson asked to leave as it’s boring and actually said that’s a man not a boy! So we left. Such a shame as it was his birthday treat.
Funniest character was Raj. Both boys loved it!
My 6 year old son loved this he laughed all through it. I would say the second half was better than the first but overall a great show
Great seats. Children loved the performance all actors worked very hard just did not have that west end feel
We came as a group of 9 and had an amazing time, play is hilarious and the stage settings fantastic. Really good time had by all!
Absolutely brilliant show! Slightly different to the book which my nephew loved (10) and my niece (4) was so engrossed she didn’t take her eyes off the stage! They both loved it!
We bought tickets for this show as part of our grandchildren's xmas present, a 12 year old and a 10 year old. They have both read all of David Walliams books so were really looking forward to the show. They said it was ok but were not overly excited about the production. We certainly were disappointed as we were expecting the 2 main boy parts to be played by boys, not men and the whole thing was rather disappointing and not very funny.
What a fabulous show ! So entertaining and what a clever set.
Excellent performance from the cast. Story was true to the book, costumes and props were brill. We enjoyed the comfortable seating in the theatre and spacious leg room. Less chaotic than going into central London. Easy to get to from Euston station.
A few staff but quality performance, fantastic and lot of fun. I’ll go again
Great acting and good story. All the family loved it.
Great story told in a fun exciting way. Perfect for all the family
loved the acting, enjoyed the songs, really good. Stanley - 8 years Ben - 47 years
Totally, completely and without a doubt a truly outstanding performance! Amazing and cleverly designed props, top quality performances and singing. A magnificent show!!! Well done to all the cast and those working behind the scenes! Have a blessed Christmas!
Great production, talented actors & a great evening out with the kids. The best one of the David walliams Shows so far.
I’m really sorry to be so negative at Christmas but this was really dire. I have to admit that we left at the interval (I’m 49 and I’ve never done that before) so I can only comment on the first half. The set (other than the helicopter) was much less impressive than many school plays I’ve seen. The sound was poor so it was difficult to hear the words of the songs but when you could they were deeply unfunny. The tunes were instantly forgettable. How you can take a book this funny and make a play this dull is beyond me. I’m afraid there really aren’t any positives. Sorry.
Staff are very helpful, theatre is very accessible, prices are standard London prices, toilets are clean. The show was very well staged, with catchy songs, although the 10 year old I went with thought it was a bit too childish in places.
Took my son who is an avid fan to see this production. Very talented actors kept him engaged throughout the performance. As is often in theatre he enjoyed seeing how the same actor can take on different roles and change in a split second. Very enjoyable and would definitely recommend. A must see production for kids.
What an amazing show and cast, with a good message behind it! I got totally lost n the performance, I can’t rate it enough 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
The perfect musical for fans of David Walliams story. Great performances from everyone, especially from main character Joe Spuds. I would have liked his character to sing more, I was surprised how good his voice was when he sang right at the end. A good mix of fun and moving moments.
We were in London from the North East for a family wedding and chose Billionaire Boy to entertain us on the Friday evening. We were not disappointed. We had my 80 year old mam and 10 year old son with us and everyone enjoyed it. The cast were amazing, I thought the cast was huge, I didn't realise they had duel roles. Great talent. Well done to the writers and production team. The theatre staff were friendly and helpful. We had a lovely night out.
Usually take my Grandchildren to a panto at Christmas but decided on Billionaire Boy this year... The children aged from 5 - 12yrs all really enjoyed it and was good to see them laugh out loud at certain things! (prob the toilet humour!). But I wasn't as struck by it, very small cast and I expected something more but who am I? The actual story was good for the children to know however, and I am happy that they were happy !
