Fun For Kids at Soho

First Published 17 April 2008, Last Updated 18 April 2008

Kids programming features in the autumn/winter season at the Soho theatre, with morning shows, a half-term treat and comedy for Christmas all in the line-up under the banner Fun For Kids.

From New York, Rachel Trachtenburg, the 13-year-old daughter from the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players (at Soho from 30 August-15 September) stars in her own morning show for kids on 1, 8 & 15 September at 11:00. Suitable for children aged six and over, the show is billed as a hilarious info-tainment designed to enlighten and entertain.

During the autumn half-term (22-26 October), the Soho welcomes Big Howard and Little Howard (as seen on CBBC and ITV) with their new epic family show Little Howard And The Magic Pencil Of Life And Death. In it, Little Howard finally meets his maker – The Pencil Of Creation. But with great power comes great responsibility and on the other end, The Rubber Of Doom! The show is suitable for children aged six and over.

In December, Fun For Kids presents Men Of Steel, a high-energy show from Australia. An award-winner at the Melbourne Comedy Festival 2006, Men Of Steel is a kitchen-set puppet show in which three madcap chefs employ everything from frying pans to popcorn to animate a world in which mischievous, person-shaped cookie cutters create adventures, mayhem and mess. An example of the burgeoning puppetry scene in Melbourne, the show has a cheeky sense of humour aimed at kids (aged six plus) and adults alike. Men Of Steel runs from 6 December-6 January.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
