This was our first trip to the Wesley Theater and how we wish we had been to see more shows here. The standard of the production was excellent, the staging and set was brilliant and the young actors from kids r us deserved the standing ovation. They were all good. The attention to detail in the program was incredible and... More

We went to see Oliver! and it was fantastic! So much talent and excellent staging. A production worthy of the west end. The theatre was small be perfect, we sat in the balcony and the view of the stage was excellent. The seats are effectively pews giving more room per person than you need, which made for a relaxing experience.

The cast were excellent, full of energy and very talented. This was excellent, far exceeding my expectations as a youth group and... More

A night out at a Kidz R Us, for one of their performances, is a highlight of our St Ives trips. We loved last years Chrismas Panto, and have just enjoyed Oliver. Our enthralled 6 year old fell for Oliver, and was so relieved that Nancy was not 'really' dead and she could say Hello to her and the rest... More

Production of Oliver was fantastic. There were a number of outstanding performances. It's a show well worth seeing. It's hard to believe that it's all run by volunteers.

I was fortunate enough to see all three productions that Kidz R us are performing whilst in Cornwall last week. Oliver was a delight. This classic show was performed to such a high standard that it was easy to forget that it was an amateur production. The singing, dancing and acting were fab and there was some brilliant characterisation and... More

We are lucky enough to live locally, so get to see all productions staged by Kidz R Us, Their youthful exuberance never fails to astound and the energy they must expend in the singing and dancing numbers is amazing. This Summer we watched both Oliver and West Side Story, some of the cast appearing in both productions. There are the... More

We enjoyed it so much we booked to see Oliver the next night which was equally as good. If you are in St Ives you must go to see... More
