Alton Towers has announced that a version of family musical the Go!Go!Go! Show will open in the park's Cloud Cuckoo Land Theatre in spring 2011.
The show debuted in London's Leicester Square Theatre in 2010, and features a child-friendly plot and a range of upbeat pop songs. It tells the story of Holly, Steve, Kirsten, Gemma and Carl, who find that their socks have been stolen by a mischievous creature known as the Fluffalope. The heroes set off on a quest to catch the Fluffalope, helped on their way by Mr Jones the magical rabbit.
The Go!Go!Go! show has received positive reviews from UK newspapers including The Sun and The Times, and features choreography from Paul Domaine (who has put together dance routines for The Saturdays and the Sugababes). It includes all-new pop songs written by Mike Stock (once of Stock, Aitken & Waterman) and Steve Crosby (who was behind many of Steps' biggest hits). More information on the show can be found on its official website.
On its way out of Alton Towers as a result of the new addition will be the Wonderful World of Cloud Cuckoo Land, which was produced by the resort's entertainments team. The show featured the adventures of Lucy and her enchanted companion, Snorlix.
The Cloud Cuckoo Land Theatre was originally built in the 1700s by George Talbot, the 14th Earl of Shrewsbury, who used it to host touring magic shows. It was abandoned in 1891 and remained closed for over a hundred years before being renovated and reopened by Alton Towers in 1993.
