MINIONS: THE RISE OF GRU  at the Festival Drayton Centre

The untold story of one twelve-year-old's dream to become the world's greatest supervillain.


In the heart of the 1970s, amid a flurry of feathered hair and flared jeans, Gru is growing up in the suburbs. A fanboy of a supervillain supergroup known as the Vicious 6, Gru hatches a plan to become evil enough to join them. Luckily, he gets some mayhem-making backup from his loyal followers, the Minions. 

“Together, Kevin, Stuart, Bob, and Otto—a new Minion sporting braces and a desperate need to please—deploy their skills as they and Gru build their first lair, experiment with their first weapons and pull off their first missions.”

Gru interviews to become their newest member after the Vicious 6 throw out their leader, Wild Knuckles. However, it doesn’t go too well and mayhem ensues! But Gru soon seeks some advice from an unlikely source.
