Scooby-Doo Live!

Scooby-Doo Live! Musical Mysteries

Summer holidays so far have been very busy, we've been lucky enough to have some great days out so far and there's still more to come. I'm pretty certain that today will be the highlight of the summer especially for the children because today we were invited to the press event for Scooby-Doo Live! Musical Mysteries at the London Palladium and who doesn't love Scooby-Doo? Having been around for about 40 years, it's a show all generations of the family will want to see. It was our first ever visit to London Palladium and my first ever time travelling into London with both children alone without another adult to 'help'... actually it went ok! And what a beautiful venue?
 
 As soon as our invite arrived the Scooby-Doo excitement started. I've loved Scooby-Doo for as long as I can remember, Oliver was a toddler when he became obsessed with it after uncle James gave him a Scooby doo hamburger cushion from his trip to LA... Isabelle has often played with Oliver's Scooby-Doo toys but has only recently watched it on tv... she loves it too! The invite arrived in a super cool box of goodies, all Scooby related of-course.
 
A brand new family musical Scooby-Doo and the Mystery inc. gang kept us entertained the entire time, no toddler getting up and wandering away (please note - this often will happen as she loses interest in things quickly). There's a few new characters as well as the well known and loved; Shaggy, Fred, Velma, Daphne and ofcourse Scooby-Doo. In this show they are disguised as a rock band called 'missing link' when they're called upon to help solve the case of Mr Warner's haunted theatre and they need your help too! The show is very interactive with the characters often asking the audience questions!

The length of the show was perfect for us lasting around approximately 80 minutes (two 30-minute acts with 20-min intermission).

Age wise - it says kids as young as 4 or 5 will love it.... Isabelle is 2 years old and she had a fantastic time! She joined in when prompted to, she got excited when she saw Scooby-Doo and shouted "ghost" when she spotted the ghost - just incase other's around us had missed it!

 The actors were amazing, their dances, singing and acting were all brilliant.


Both children had an amazing afternoon watching Scooby-Doo Live! Oliver has asked if we could go again tomorrow whilst Isabelle now adores Daphne

If you want to see it too, you need to be quick! It's only on for a short time at the London Palladium 18th-21st August with 3 shows a day. You can find out more and buy tickets at www.scoobydoolive.co.uk
