R.L Stine’s 'Goosebumps Alive'

All of those fans that were absolutely obsessed with the 90’s cult Goosebump series (which includes myself) will be excited to hear of the new 'Promenade Show' that is showing from the 6th April 2016 in the Vaults underneath Waterloo, London. This is to be an ongoing event for all R.L Stine, Goosebumps fans. 

The website suggests a tour-like submersion into the world of Goosebumps, boasting of nineteen rooms filled with freaky thrills and creepy monsters. Goosebumps Alive is a strictly adult affair that will contain many terrifying exploits that are not for the weak of heart.

The theatrics will include many well-known extracts from many of the much loved books including: The Blob That Ate Everyone, The Haunted Mask, Stay Out Of The Basement and more. However, those unfamiliar with the stories need not worry as the theatre promises a whole new narrative for people to enjoy. There will be two shows, 'Goosebumps Alive' for all 12+, which will run for ninety minutes, and 'Goosebumps Kids', suitable for children aged 5-11 years old, running for fifty minutes.

Some may recognise the style of the walking tour show created by its designer, Samual Wyer, who designed 'Alice’s Adventures Underground', another immersive show in The Vaults, in May 2015. The narrative of this new kind of theatrical experience has been written by Gabriel Greene and Tom Salamon who is the co-creator and writer of ‘Accomplice’ productions in New York City. Both are sure to bring their own unique style and talents to the re-creation of Stine’s original Goosebumps series.

Come one, come all, for terror awaits…

All should be aware that this is a production that one walks around and therefore seats will not be provided. There is to be a public snack bar at the entrance and the exit of the show. Adult tickets are from £32.50 and child tickets are from £25 which you can buy from SEE tickets.
