Over the years, the Singing Kettle has grown from being a small show for children, touring playgroups and schools, to the biggest box office draw in the UK. Early shows were based on clues for songs inside brightly coloured kettles. While this principle is still central to the action, plot lines and stage sets are now built around imaginative story lines, transforming the original concept into a spectacular musical for the whole family.
Cilla Fisher, Artie Trezise and Kevin MacLeod with Gary Coupland have turned children's theatre into an art form and their unique performances have become the bench mark for fellow professionals everywhere. They have performed in hundreds of venues, from the Palladium in London to the Town Hall in Campbeltown, from the Palace Theatre in Kilmarnock to the Royal Palace in Jordan. BAFTA award winning and decorated with MBE's for services to children's entertainment, audiences worldwide are hooked on their madcap musical adventures flavoured with cheeky Scottish humour.
Adults and children alike find themselves singing the songs together long after the performance is over.
'... a delight for kids, parents and grandparents alike. The laughter, singing and inter-action is contagious' (Edinburgh Evening News).
