- Show Synopsis
If you’ve got a child under 7 years of age in your family, then you’ll know the name Justin Fletcher, and the fact that he is the biggest thing in children’s television at the moment. Also known as Mr Tumble, Justin stars in the CBeebies smash hit shows Gigglebiz, Something Special, Jollywobbles, Higgledy House, Tikabilla, is a relief presenter and has also provided character voices into Tweenies, Boo, Toddworld, Shaun the Sheep and many many more. He has also received numerous children’s BAFTA’s for his work and in 2008 was awarded an MBE for his services to television and charity. In the eyes of a whole generation he is a superstar.
Given his hectic schedule and huge popularity it is a huge coup for the Grimsby Auditorium to be hosting Justin’s self penned show Justin Live! for one of only three UK dates this year.
Justin Live! is a show written and performed by Justin himself. He promises lots of songs, laughter and fun for all the family. Producer Steve Boden from Imagine Theatre who are bringing the show to the Grimsby Auditorium explains how the show came about:
“At Imagine we have worked with Justin Fletcher for a number of years on various projects and Justin Live originated a few years ago after Justin expressed an interest in developing a live show to give children their first taster of a live theatrical experience. The few select dates we have done over the last few years were a huge success and we are thrilled to be able to give the children (and adults!) of Grimsby and the surrounding areas an opportunity to experience Justin Live!. It is a fabulous, fun, action packed, interactive show which gets everyone involved, and the children absolutely love it!”
Steve goes on to say, “Given Justin’s huge popularity and the fact that we have just two performances it is no surprise the show is selling really well. I would advise people to book soon as I think there may be quite a few disappointed children come October as we are expecting it to be a sell-out.”
