A cast of more than 100 young people will perform at Bristol Old Vic this summer to celebrate the theatre’s 250th anniversary.
The Old Vic’s young company, which is aged between five and 25, is performing Under A Cardboard Sea from August 4-6 at the theatre in King Street.
The play is inspired by 19th century theatre, where hundreds of child performers would be the stars of Victorian shows.
Under A Cardboard Sea is set under a cloud of smog in a dreary Victorian city, where secrets and lies are the foundation of society.
While the wheels of industry grind on, child after child goes missing from the streets.

The show features an ensemble performance, plus choreography and original music, which is performed by the young company’s own house band.
The shows start at 7.30pm, with a matinee at 2.30pm on August 6.
