Once again, Monkey Trousers Theatre – founded by Bishopston mums, Fran Lewis and Charlotte Whitten – is delighted to bring a brand new episode of the hugely popular theatrical sitcom for children to the audiences of Bristol.

Want something? Need anything? Well, even if it’s in the middle of a dark and spooky night, it seems like Mr Gotalot’s Gotalot Shop is open for business in The Chinchilla Thriller…Mr Gotalot’s Gotalot Shop: The Chinchilla Thriller.

There’s a shadowy customer waiting somewhere in the Gotalot Shop – only trouble is, it’s the middle of the night and the shelves in the shop are mysteriously empty.

This crazy customer needs a special potion for some dark deeds – but does Mr Gotalot have the right one? Can Sidney, the ever-eager shop boy, help the shopkeeper with this sinister task? Or will Ms Barnet, the meddling landlady, finally get to evict them?

If you’ve ever wondered what happens when mad science meets hair-raising adventure, then join Monkey Trousers Theatre on Sunday 27th September and Sunday 4th October to find out.

Performances are at 10.30am, 1pm and 3.30pm at the Kelvin Players Studio Theatre, 253b Gloucester Road, Bishopston, Bristol BS7 8NY. Doors open 30 minutes before show time.
