Billionaire Boy Review

New Victoria Theatre, Woking – until 10th April 2022

Reviewed by Elaine Bateman


We went to see Billionaire Boy with our two boys aged 11 and 13. The show really portrays the story written by David Walliams.

Our boys favourite characters were Joe, played by Matthew Gordon and Bob played by Jake Lomas. They said they were funny and kind. My personal favourite was Mrs Trafe played by Emma Matthews she was so animated and funny with a fantastic voice. We were amazed how quickly the cast changed between scenes too! There were a lot of very funny parts in the show and some of the younger children in the audience were laughing out loud. There was also some audience participation which I love. All the cast are extremely talented and played their parts exceptionally. The show would appeal to all ages.

A real feel good show with a good moral that money can’t buy you everything. I would thoroughly recommend this show to families. If you have read the book you will love the show and if you haven’t read the book you will also love the show. Fantastic performance
