Family shows set for Artrix

Plenty for all at Bromsgrove’s arts centre.

With the excitement of Christmas a distant memory, there are still plenty of enjoyable family theatre, cinema and dance events to look forward to at Artrix.

The fun begins with a new production of The Wizard of Oz on Sunday 14th January at 7pm. Presented by the irresistibly anarchic Oddsocks productions, this production is full of laughs, new songs and Dorothy as you’ve never seen her before.

Artrix’s Baby Rave returns on Sunday 28th January and has already sold out, but this ever popular event will be back later in the year with Baby Rave VII on Sunday 27th May at 2pm.

Red Earth Theatre presents Mirror Mirror, a new version of Snow White, on Sunday 4th February at 2pm. Mirror Mirror is a mischievous take on the ever-popular fairy-tale, beloved by generations of children. This new version of the timeless tale combines beautiful puppets, captivating storytelling and mesmerising sign language.

Parents needn’t be stuck for ways to keep the family entertained during February half–term with a pop-tastic Bubble Disco on Sunday 18th February at 2pm and cinema screenings of the hit animated film, Ferdinand on Saturday 17th, Monday 19th & Wed 21st February 11am.

Families looking for a half-term theatre trip should look no further, as a stage-production of big, bad, Monstersaurus will be stomping and roaring its way onto the stage at Artrix on Thursday 22nd February at 11am & 2pm. The creators of Aliens Love Underpants will be bringing this much-loved book to life with magic, mayhem, music and audience participation – but only if you dare!

Looking ahead to the Easter holidays Artrix is pleased to welcome the family stage show, Easter Bunny’s Eggs Factor on Monday 2nd April at 2pm. Audiences are invited to sing along to their favourite nursery rhymes to help the characters practice their songs for Fluffy Bunny’s singing contest. The production is followed by a meet, greet with the Easter Bunny himself, including a free Easter treat for every child.

Taking Flight Theatre Company presents You’ve Got Dragons on Wednesday 11th April. Bad dreams? Swirly tummy? Feeling prickly? What can a child with a bad case of the dragons do? You’ve Got Dragons is delightful tale with live, original music. This highly visual, sensitive production is a humorous and touching exploration of the dragons we all face.

Lastly, Ballet enthusiasts can enjoy a screening of the Vienna Festival Ballet performing the most popular Ballet of all time, Swan Lake, on Sunday 15th April at 2pm or 5pm.

Family tickets are available for selected performances. For further information on any of the events listed above or to book tickets visit or call the box office on 01527 577330.
