Along with her posse the Ace Gang, 14 year old Georgia Nicolson is on a mission to win a Sex God boyfriend in the form of the local band lead singer Robbie. With the help of her crazy cat, Angus and her best mate Jas, a snogtastic plan develops.

Can Georgia use her newly acquired boy-entrancing charms to lure the Sex God away from his girlfriend Wet Lindsey? Or will she decide to go after Italian Luurve God Massimo? And what about Dave the Laugh? A great mate but would you go past number one on the snogging scale with him?

This new stage adaptation of the "Queen of Teen" Louise Rennison's Fab Confessions of Georgia Nicolson is for anyone who's a teenager, has ever been a teenager, or knows someone who is about to be one soon....

    I came to watch this show on Saturday 11th February. I really enjoyed all of it but particularly the dream sequences including "I am not Robbie, I am a bakewell tart". The puppetry was a brilliant way to portray Angus and Libby. All the cast were excellent and worked very hard. I was amazed how few of them there were at the end. I laughed lots throughout this show. A definate must see to chortle away the winter blues!

    I came to watch Angus, Thongs and Even More Snogging on 11th February 2012. It was mind-blowing and hilarious all at the same time. I especially like the way they used the effects to portray Angus and Libby, but my overall favorite bit was when Dave rode away on the fast camel. There was not a weak link in all the cast and I have to say I loved the school girl costumes for the people changing the scenery. It was a performance to never forget if you have seen it and if you haven't then you are really missing out!

    My daughter and I saw the show on 13th February. We enjoyed a delicious pre-preformance dinner and then laughed and laughed throughout the show. The whole cast are amazing but Emily (playing Rosie) took me back 20-odd years to my schooldays with my shirt half in, half out, socks falling down, great comic gusto and a school report where my deportment always left a lot to be desired! We were lucky enough to meet most of the cast who were both charming and generous with their time as was the author, Louise Rennison and the co-adapter Mark Catley. We loved it so much we are coming back with friends to see it again.

If you have a GSOH, go see it ASAP! plus you can Tweet during the show which is a first! Go see it before it finishes, it's amazing! One of the best things I've ever seen at the playhouse!!

    My 13 year old daughter Lucy and I really enjoyed this show and found the characters very convincing. You totally believed that the actors were 14 years old. Very funny and also moving in parts, bring your tissues for when Angus gets injured! Louise Rennison was watching on the night we went and was more than happy to sign autographs and chat to the audience. A great show, go and see it!.

    I went to see this on the 11th of February with my friends for our birthdays and we all loved it! We've read all the books and watched the film so many times that we know all the words and so we had to go and see the play! The music, stage and actors were all perfect and we all wanted to see it again straight away! We especially loved the dream scenes, and the romeo and Juliet performance!

    My daughter asked me to see the play with her and we plumped for last Friday so we could attend the Q&A session too.The Q&A was entertaining and informative, with Louise Rennison and Mark Catley capably compered by Sam Wood. I found the play very accessible, despite being a middle-aged man who hadn't read any of the books. I was jabbed in the arm by my daughter's elbow several times for laughing too loud, so the humour definitely reached me, especially the snog-o-meter and Mutti's secret book. The music enhanced the exuberance of the performance. I also thought it deftly reflected on the difference between the Robbie's angst about the outside world and Georgia's focus on her own feelings without diverting attention from her story. Overall it was a fun evening that I enjoyed immensely. If you're a dithering dad, dive in and have a great evening out before the run ends!

    Astonishing! Great actors,cast and overall, a 10 out of 10 performance! Me, my friend and our Mum's went to see it and I could defiantly hear chuckling from the Mum's! I liked how it was a different ending to the actual movie and I would see it again if I could. All the cast have inspired me to become an actress (especially Naomi) good luck for the future!

    i thought that when we was going as part of a drama group it was going to be rather boring because it was a theatre play, but as i was watching it i thought how much different it is, i thought it  was amazing and would love to see it again it was amazing how they put it all together and didnt copy the whole film!!!!
