Theatre: Billionaire Boy


6.00pm - 8.00pm

Heartbreak Productions returns to the Museum this summer with a theatrical premiere of David Walliams’ Billionaire Boy, adapted for the outdoor stage.

Mr Spud has lost all his money. Not much… just a few billion pounds! Heartbreak Productions, Mr Spud and his son, Joe, would like to invite you to a garage sale (they used to own 500 garages) where they will be selling their final belongings to raise some money to buy food. The Formula 1 racing car has already been taken by the bailiffs, but there might be something interesting left. Bring your picnics, blankets and fold up chairs and come to the helicopter pad outside at Bumfresh Towers to hear the story of how Mr Spud made his billions, lost it all and how Joe became the richest boy in the world.

Recommended age: 7+. Running time: 2 hours including a 20-minute interval after 50 minutes.

The performance will take place on Sunday 27th August 2017. Tickets are £12 for adults, £8 for children, or £35 for 2 adults and 2 children. Pre-booking is essential. Please note that we cannot offer refunds for this production.

You are welcome to bring a picnic and enjoy your own refreshments. The Museum’s café will also be open before the performance and during the interval.

Please bring your own low-backed seating or rugs. The performance is not under cover so it is advisable to come prepared for all types of weather.

The Heartbreak Productions team will perform in all but the very worst of weathers. Performances will not be cancelled due to rain nor refunds given. However, should torrential rain or thunder and lightning strike, the performance will be halted for health and safety reasons. This judgement is down to the Event Co-ordinator on the day.
