What they say: Direct from a sell-out North American tour, Scooby-Doo Live! Musical Mysteries comes to the West End to thrill London audiences for the very first time!
A local theatre is being haunted by a hair-brained ghost but never fear, Fred, Velma, Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo have boarded the Mystery Machine and are out to crack the case!
Scooby-Doo Live! Musical Mysteries is a brand-new family musical that sees cartoon favourites the Mystery Inc. Gang unite to solve another big mystery. Full of twists and turns, wild ghosts and Scooby Snacks, Scooby-Doo Live! Musical Mysteries features everyone’s favourite theme song, ‘Scooby-Doo Where Are You?’ and catchy new tunes, such as ‘We’re Mystery Inc.’, ‘Round Every Corner’ and ‘A Musical Mystery’. Scooby and his mates will all be there, live on stage, with their hilarious antics alongside a host of zany new characters.
Playing at the beautiful London Palladium for just a handful of performances this August, Scooby-Doo Live! Musical Mysteries overflows with fun and laughs and is a wonderful experience for Scooby fans young and old.
What we say: “Being a child of the 80’s Scooby Doo was big part of our childhood. Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Velma and Daphne were the well-known Mystery solving gang. Who could forget the famous Mystery Machine and Scooby yelping ‘Scooby Dooby Doo!’?
We were intrigued and looking forward to seeing how the nostalgic cartoon would be bought to life in a live theatre production at the London Palladium. So off we set, two mums and two six year old boys ready to be captivated by Scooby Doo Live! Musical Mysteries.
In typical Scooby fashion, a bothersome ghost is causing trouble at the London Palladium. Scooby, Shaggy and the Gang are on the job to crack the theatrical case and solve the mystery behind the spook. The show captures the hearts of all, through fun songs and hilarious antics. Our boys were engrossed, sitting on the edge of their seats, delighted to see what would happen next.
Daphne engages the audience encouraging us to join in with the dances. The audience bellowed the word ‘Ghost’ every time the pesky, spooky larger than life being emerged. The show captured hearts and imagination. The scenery was perfectly matched with the original show.
We knew the show had done its job as the boys were engaged in an intense conversation about their favourite parts!”
