Description

Follow your dreams… don't give up… have-a-go… believe in yourself and amazing things can happen, in this inspirational children's theatre production they do!

Mr Albert is faced with adversity, his Theatre is about to close. Charlie the Caretaker wants to save it by putting on a show, but they need a Big Finish! Will the Safety Inspector let Charlie do something dangerous? Has Mr Albert got talent and will he perform the Fastest Magic Trick in the World? Can Charlie learn to juggle in time to save the theatre?

With the help of the audience, practise makes perfect. There's loads of visual comedy and audience participation in this colourful show, set in an old theatre. It's packed full of magic and fun and with a gloriously happy ending to send out your young audiences, and their grown ups, flushed with excitement.

Mr Albert's Big Finish, devised by Jon Marshall, Steve Collison and Jamie Waudby, was inspired by their fascination with the traditional variety acts who toured the music halls and variety theatres in the golden years of variety entertainment, and by the fate of so many variety theatres that were demolished in the 1960s, or at best turned into Bingo Halls.

As in the best melodrama there is a threat from a villain, the Health and Safety Inspector, who is eventually thwarted by Charlie's determination to do something dangerous! ““I want to put my pyjamas on inside out, I want to go in the exit and out the entrance”, Charlie exclaims just before he leaps onto a huge rolling globe and attempts to balance on top of it.

If your audiences like funny stories, magic, juggling, comedy and joining in they'll love Mr Albert's Big Finish!
