Happy Birthday, Spot!

From the Producers of David Walliams’ Mr Stink, Sam Bradshaw Productions are delighted to present Spot’s Birthday Party live on stage at Mansfield Palace Theatre on Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 March 2024.

Based on the ever-popular books by Eric Hill and with words and songs by Guy Unsworth, Spot the dog is having a very special birthday party and everyone’s invited!

Join Spot and his friends for this engaging and interactive show for everyone aged two plus and their grownups.

With integrated Makaton, free party hats, catchy songs, dancing and lots of interactive party games, this is going to be the best birthday party ever!

Based on the beloved Eric Hill classic Happy Birthday Spot that parents and grandparents will remember well, this brand-new adaptation is the perfect introduction to theatre for children. They will be encouraged to sing and dance along with Steve the Monkey, Tom the Crocodile, Helen the Hippo and Sally and Sam, Spot’s parents, to say a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY SPOT!

Spot has been an integral part of childhood for over 40 years and with his inquisitive nature, sense of curiosity, boundless energy, and simple shapes and colours, Spot helps families, babies and toddlers explore the world around them.

A show representative tells us:

“I’ve just watched a preview run of the full show and it is adorable! It’s very gentle and accessible with lots of interaction: call and response, counting, colour matching, singalongs etc. The storyline is very simple but engaging and easy for the kids to follow. Whilst it isn’t a relaxed performance presentation kids are 100% free to dance and sing along.”

She continues:

“The costumes look fantastic – every time a new character came onstage the kids were gasping and pointing and shouting hello!”

We can’t wait for you to see the show here at your local theatre next month, and you will even be able to meet your favourite characters for a selfie afterwards in the foyer. Grab your tickets now from the what's on page or call Box Office on 01623 463133.
