Kaleidoscope bring it everytime! If you like beautiful singing, expertly twisted narrratives (only from ONE prompt!) with often hilarious, sometimes touching, and always perfectly resolved plot points then come to Lights up! I am always in awe of how they manage to perform a great but different show night after night. Don't miss it!

If you love music, comedy and improv, bloody hell go see Kaleidoscope!!!

They craft creative and hilarious narratives; the music is excellent and they are all such phenomenal singers. I've seen them twice at Fringe already, and it's so easy to forget that it's all improvised, they're THAT good.

Extraordinary show full of musical genius and comedic wit!! Each night they bring the audience on a fantastical journey through the joys of life and make believe! Don’t hesitate, go see Kaleidoscope perform “Lights Up!”

Mind blowing talent. This crew had me laughing, crying, singing along and thinking about life and death all in an hour. By far the best show I saw at Fringe.

Both wildly talented and joyfully chaotic, this show is great fun.

I saw Kaleidoscope perform at the Improv Cage Match and was impressed. Their full show was more of the same and absolutely blown away. Really talented, really funny, great chemistry between them and amazing musically. Gutted that my time in Edinburgh came to an end or would definitely see them again.
