Immersive Thunderbirds production delayed by a year

Thunderbirds: Beyond the Horizon was due to open in November.

The world premiere of an interactive Thunderbirds show has been pushed back by a year, as producers continue to develop its “unique technical and immersive elements”.

Thunderbirds: Beyond the Horizon was due to open at new immersive theatre space the Buzz in November this year, but will now open in late 2019.

In a statement, producers Limelight Productions and EBP said today: “Our ambition is to deliver a visually and technically rich world to immerse our audiences in, utilising cutting-edge technologies and creative opportunities. To achieve our ambitions to the level of detail and complexity needed, we decided to build our own venue, the Buzz. However, in order to continue developing its unique technical and immersive elements, we have had to reschedule the show.”

Instead, the producers will open The Time Travellers’ Ball, running from November 28.

The show is billed as a “90-minute immersive experience” that invites audiences to be part of the party and learn dances from different decades.

It is written and directed by Richard Lewis, with design by Tom Paris, choreography by Jacquie Storey, and lighting by Peter Small.

The Buzz is based at Mercato Metropolitano, near Elephant and Castle.
