BBC Kids Play Heads to Kent


Madam Events and Watershed Productions are bringing the BBC Worldwide and Polka Theatre adaptation of the CBeebies series “Charlie and Lola” to Bluewater’s Glow exhibition center in Kent, England, this December.

“Charlie and Lola’s Best Bestest Day” will be performed by Watershed Productions, which has staged the show in theaters around the U.K. since 2009.

The play will form a key part of the Christmas offerings at Bluewater, which also include a skating rink, Santa’s Grotto and more than 300 retailers.

The stage performance is inspired by Tiger Aspect Productions’ hit TV series, which is based on the books by Lauren Child.

In “Charlie and Lola’s Best Bestest Day,” the world of Charlie and his little sister Lola are brought to life on stage through a mix of puppets, live action and music.

Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster with performances taking place from Dec. 13 through Jan. 5.
