Aliens Love Underpants at the Dominion Theatre
Children’s Show Appears During the Summer in the West End
Though it remains the ongoing home of Michael Flatley’s The Lord Of The Dance, the Dominion Theatre is also set to welcome the children’s show Aliens Love Underpants this summer season as the adaptation of the popular book is reported by Official London theatre.
The show will play concurrently with the dance hit during August 2015, allowing audiences who missed out on its previous Leicester Square Theatre run another chance to pick up theatre tickets for performances until the beginning of September.
Aliens Love Underpants does everything is says on the tin and introduces us to some space-dwelling beings who have an unexpected reason for travelling to Earth. They want our underpants! Space has a lot of exciting things, but underpants are not amongst them and so they must come to our planet for some hilarious antics that will have kids laughing in the aisles.
It is based on the book by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort, which has entertained crowds for almost a decade. Its prior appearance in the capital proved to be a big success and now it follows in the footsteps of The Gruffalo in finding a new home in the West End.
And it is directed by Adam Bampton-smith, who has previously brought a range of hit shows to the stage around the world. His credits include writing the likes of Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus! and The Life And Adventures Of Santa Claus, amongst others, and is also the Artistic Director of the Big Wooden Horse Theatre Company.
Whilst Aliens Love Underpants runs with The Lord Of The Dance in the summer, the Dominion Theatre then hands over to another high profile production in the form of Elf The Musical, the adaptation of the Will Ferrell film that opens in October 2015. On this occasion it is Ben Forster who takes on the role of Buddy The Elf, whilst Kimberley Walsh (a member of the group Girls Aloud) also takes to the stage.
Aliens Love Underpants, meanwhile, runs at the Dominion Theatre from Saturday 1st August 2015 to Saturday 5th September 2015.
