Introducing Monkey Trousers Theatre’s New Show: ‘Mr Gotalot’s Gotalot Shop – The Cheese Burglar!’


I am really pleased to introduce a brand new episode of Mr Gotalot’s Gotalot Shop, the enormously popular theatrical sitcom aimed at families in Bristol and the South West courtesy of Monkey Trouser’s Theatre.

Want something? Need anything? Been burgled? An extremely clever detective is called to the magical Gotalot Shop to help solve a very serious crime in:

Mr Gotalot’s Gotalot Shop: The Cheese Burglar!

Someone has burgled Ms Barnet’s lovely golden cheese and she wants the criminal mastermind brought to justice!

Enter Detective Shirley Lock, the supremely smart private eye, who must deduce from a variety of mysterious clues just who the Cheese Burglar could be.

Meanwhile, Sidney’s evil twin brother has come to stay for a holiday… Will Mr Gotalot and the gang be able to solve the crime before teatime?

Just what exactly has happened to Ms Barnet’s precious golden cheese? Will Detective Lock find all of the vital clues? And how do you do a car chase in a theatre??

There’ll be plenty of the usual shenanigans so join Monkey Trousers Theatre for the sixth instalment of this exciting and totally criminal show for the whole family!
