Show in a Week: The Aristocats Kids cast members
Rehearsed and performed in one week:
Monday 29 – Friday 2 August 2024
What is a Show in a Week?
We stage a musical in one week during the Summer Holidays, with children aged 5-11 taking all of the roles! This year, we are performing The Aristocats Kids, based on the Disney animated classic.
Over the week, we will learn the classic songs adjusted for younger voices, put together some fabulous dance numbers, and rehearse the rest of the show so we can perform it for an audience at the end of the week on the Trinity stage.
Everyone who signs up gets cast in the show, with low-pressure auditions determining who takes on what role.
All cast members get a show t-shirt and digital copies of the show photos.
We provide the costumes, make-up, props and set, making the show look at brilliant as possible. Our young cast rehearse, perform, have fun, make friends and create memories that will last for years!
There may be two casts for the show, which will be determined by the audition date depending on the number of sign-ups. The rehearsal locations will be within a short distance of Trinity Theatre.
Younger children (those going into School Years 1-3 from September 2024) rehearse from 9.30am – 12.30pm each day, while older children (School Years 4-6 from September 2024) rehearse from 9.30am – 3.30pm, joining together at Trinity in the early afternoon.
Priority booking for 2023 show participants, and members of our weekly workshops, will open soon at the 2023 prices, which are confirmed until October 2023.
For School Years 1-3, it costs £120 to take part in the week (that’s only £24 per half-day of rehearsals!)
For School Years 4-6, it costs £210 to take part in the week (or £42 per full-day of rehearsals!)
We know times are currently financial tough for some families, and don’t want anybody who wants to come to be put off by the price. We have bursaries available via The Elliott Fund for those who need financial support.
Our shows often have waiting lists, and so refunds are only possible if we are able to find someone else to take your space once we have sold out.

What’s The Aristocats About?
Based on the beloved Disney animated film, and featuring a jazzy, upbeat score, Disney’s The Aristocats KIDS is a non-stop thrill ride of feline fun, complete with unbelievable twists and turns.
In the heart of Paris, a kind and eccentric millionairess wills her entire estate to Duchess, her high-society cat, and her three little kittens. Laughs and adventure ensue as the greedy, bumbling butler pulls off the ultimate catnap caper. Now it’s up to the rough-and-tumble alley cat, Thomas O’Malley, and his band of swingin’ jazz cats to save the day.
“I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone involved with the production of Winnie the Pooh last week. My daughter had an absolutely fabulous time and enjoyed every minute. The performance was wonderful! The programmes, photography, costumes, sound and stage management were so professional. The whole production was such a great experience for the children and so enjoyable to watch.“
