The Go! Go! Go! Show in London for a strictly limited season - two performances only in morning and afternoon each Saturday.
The Go! Go! Go! Show is an all-new family extravaganza featuring five new pop stars, brand new songs and a sock-stealing 'Fluffalope'! This energetic song and dance-fuelled adventure is stacked full of laughs and audience interaction for kids of all ages to enjoy this summer! The Go! Go! Go! Show is directed by Carole Todd, choreographed by Paul Domaine and features an original story by Dean Wilkinson with music by Mike Stock (one third of the legendary Stock, Aitken & Waterman!) and Steve Crosby (who masterminded Steps).
"Mike Stock, Steve Crosby and the scriptwriter Dean Wilkinson look as if they're out to create a brand here, a pop band for kids for which this bright, breezy, charmless live show may just be a warning shot across the bows. Adults will hate it. They'll hate its manufactured sheen and the lack of chemistry between the five pneumatic performers, who perform their lines as if reading off cue cards. They'll lament the lack of anything really happening, give or take a hunt for a missing sock and some it's-behind-you shenanigans with a sock-eating purple puppet. They may have to concede, though, that the songs work... Stock and Crosby have a mighty knack for a hook, and during the eight synthetic but superbly crafted pop numbers the cast move around with all the ease and focus that they lack in the speaky bits... It's a plasticated, stilted show featuring some plasticated, well-tooled songs. It's pretty awful. But it seems to work." The Times
