This spectacular adaptation of E Nesbit’s classic steams into London’s Waterloo from York Theatre Royal where it was originally produced at the National Railway Museum.
London’s breathtaking theatrical event is now staged at the former Eurostar Terminal where a 1,000 seat venue has been built around the railway tracks with audience seated either side. The Railway Children adapted by Mike Kenny and directed by Damian Cruden has arrived; bringing with it all the power of hope, the romance of steam trains and the magic of theatrical invention.
Featuring Stirling Single, a gorgeous 66-tonne steam locomotive and the Old Gentlemans’s Saloon (from the original Railway Children film) join Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis as they tell their story – of joy, sadness, laughter and love…
The production is in support of the Railway Children’s Charity that aims to help homeless and runaway children throughout the world. £1 per ticket sale will be donated to the charity.
