The Railway Children Tickets
The Railway Children Tickets
Based on a children's book by Edith Nesbit, "The Railway Children" is a story of family, friendship and false accusations. The adventure, first published over 100 years ago, is a timeless tale for young and old alike. After six radio and screen adaptations, this beloved story is now a live action play featuring a unique train station setting and a truly breathtaking set piece.
Meet the Railway Children
Set at the turn of the century, our story begins with the Railway Children's father being suddenly imprisoned and the family moving to a cottage near a Yorkshire train station. The Railway Children themselves are siblings Roberta (also known as Bobbie), Peter and Phyllis. Though adults take on the roles of the Waterbury children in the current run of the show, the cast brings the young characters to life with ease. When stationmaster Albert Perks (most recently played by beloved children's television personality Justin Fletcher) comes into their story, they are bound to find adventure. In "The Railway Children", Bobbie, Peter and Phyllis take audiences on a ride of somewhat epic proportions and find themselves in many new and challenging situations. From reuniting families to saving lives, the siblings' escapades make for an exciting and exhilarating show.
A Thrilling Experience
Purchasing "The Railway Children" tickets means you're in for a truly original treat. The Olivier Award-winning production prides itself on its unique setting, with a stage built around an actual train track near Kings Cross Station in London, England. You'll want to cheer for the jolly cast as they guide you through a story straight out of time itself, especially when the special effects begin. Train whistles and puffs of steam add an element of realism to the set, but that isn't all. In fact, you might just be blown away as a real, 600-tonne steam locomotive barrels into the scene! This museum piece, a William Adams Express Passenger Engine, is arguably the true star of the show. Adding an element of magic to the historical setting, audiences describe the experience as "clever", "spellbinding" and "fantastic". If you're looking for a truly unique and lively theatre adventure, "The Railway Children" is certain to deliver.
