After picking up a booster cushion for our son, we found our seats and excitedly waited for the production to start. As with most productions like this, the set is simple and relies heavily on the three talented actors, who seamlessly transitioned from one character to another. The music is brilliant, and the style of the show takes a number of cues from pantomime, featuring a chase through the audience, a game of catch with a beach ball, and even a ‘they’re behind you’ moment, which Zachary loved.
At just under an hour it is a perfect length for children, even though our theatre loving little lad wanted more. Even his little sister was transfixed on the what was happening on the stage. Having now watched it first hand I can understand why it continues to return to the stage year after year.
