The Star Seekers

by The Wardrobe Ensemble

The Wardrobe Theatre and The Wardrobe Ensemble Co-production

Have you ever dreamt of flying to the moon? 

Visiting a space station?

Becoming an astronaut?


Join The Wardrobe Ensemble and The Wardrobe Theatre on a journey through the stars where you take the steering wheel.


Inspired by our childhood wonder of the universe, we have created a unique theatre experience for children; a show that passes on our awe for the limitless majesty of galaxies, the solar system, shooting stars and planets to the next generation and also delves into one of greatest unanswered questions of the universe: what do astronauts really have for dinner?!


A brand new, out of this world family show by The Wardrobe Ensemble and The Wardrobe Theatre.

The Star Seekers was developed and performed for young audiences and their parents at The Wardrobe Theatre in January and Febuary of 2015.


It was the best-selling show in The Wardrobe Theatre’s history.

The Star Seekers transferred to the National Theatre in summer 2018


The Star Seekers is available for touring.







“Boasts as much improvisational elan as Showstoppers! and more genuine interaction with the audience than most shows on the fringe.”

The Guardian

“Appeals to a child’s wide-eyed wonder and hunger for exploration... It’s silly, sparkling stuff.”

★★★★ The Stage

"Places the children at the very heart of this brilliantly involving show" 
★★★★ Time Out 


"A rare find... delightful for children and adults alike" Younger Theatre

"Children aged between three and seven with even a modicum of interest in the great unknown up above our heads will get pulled into the irresistible gravitational field of this beautifully wide-eyed, enthusiastic and good-humoured show. They’ll also take away the satisfaction of having helped to shape its journey across constellations of possibility."

Bristol 24/7

"a stellar example of everything that is good about family theatre."
