From small beginnings in 1975, the RTÉ Late Late Toy Show has grown to become a singular phenomenon in modern Irish culture, this is usually the start of families getting ready for Christmas.
In 2021, records were broken with a live TV audience for the Late Late Toy Show of more than 1.5 million people. Much more than a television show, the night itself heralds the official 'start of Christmas' when generations watch together for a truly special celebration of children, great toys and much more!
Toy Show The Musical is the story of one family on Toy Show night and the magic that the Toy Show brings to their community and into their home. We are brought to a town in Ireland where all roads lead to the Toy Show, as everybody prepares, in their own way, to settle down for the most exciting night of the year.
Full of fun, laughter and love we see how the Toy Show allows children to realise that the magic they need to change their world already exists within them.
