Soho Theatre announces parent/guardian and baby performances

Soho Theatre announces a season of performances for parents and their children under one year old. Adopting the model that has proved popular in cinemas, Soho Screamers is a season of performances across all genres which allows parents and their babies to kick back, relax and enjoy the best of Soho’s theatre and comedy without the hassle of finding childcare.

These extra 11am performances are exclusively available to parents with their under one-year-olds. The content of the show remains the same, but lights remain on to make it easier to feed your baby. No-one will mind if your baby cries, you walk around or change nappies during the show.

The initial season opens with Bridget Christie’s Foster Award-winning show A Bic for Her (Wed 20 Nov); Soho Theatre’s dark and delicious Christmas musical from Anthony Neilson, Tom Mills and Soho Artistic Director Steve Marmion, The Night Before Christmas (Wed 11 Dec); Soho Theatre’s Associate Company Late Night Gimp Fight (Tue 18 Dec); and seeing in the New Year is *Luisa Omeilan*’s mega-hit show What Would Beyoncé Do?! (Wed 8 Jan).

At all performances there will be a buggy park, additional nappy changing facilities, bottle warming facilities and a special meal deal for Soho Screamers ticket holders in the Soho Theatre Bar after the performance.

Mark Godfrey Executive Director of Soho Theatre says:

“Stephanie Moore from Mother’s Play approached us with the great idea of creating parent/guardian and baby performances, borrowing from the success of similar style cinema screenings and adapted to live performance. We’re really pleased to be able to act on this and work with her to provide a series of performances across our theatre and comedy programme, broadening access and making our work available to more people.”

Soho Screamers had been created in association with Stephanie Moore from Mother’s Play, to find out more about Mother’s Play visit Facebook or Twitter
