WHAT’S ON 27
Mystery Machine Heads To Norwich For Ghostly Investigation Scooby Doo – The Mystery Of The Pyramid Beware ghosts, ghouls and the scarily sinister. Those game ghost-hunters Scooby Doo and his friends are heading back to Norwich in a brand new adventure.
They find themselves having to deal with mysterious Egyptian mummies who are protecting an ancient pyramid plus the risk of being turned into stone if they dare to approach the imposing stone structure.
The Mystery of The Pyramid sees Scooby and friends Shaggy, Fred, Velma and Daphne take their brightly-coloured Mystery Machine on a brand new adventure to the land of the Pharaoahs.
Get set for an all-action show for all the family when the production arrives at Norwich Theatre Royal on April 1416. The show will feature 90 minutes of hilarious comedy, great tunes and stunning special effects featuring a cast of top performers.
It is the iconic children’s character’s first visit to Norwich for around five years. His last show The Pirate Ghost held its worldwide premiere in the city early in 2009 attracting lots of media attention and even saw Scooby and his friends make a flying visit to the Forum.
