A lovely show with great puppets. Definitely not for the age group recommended which was 3-16, as far to young for children over 10. My 11 year old twins geprandaughters thought the puppets were good but it was 'a bit babyish' . I agree! Their 5 year old brother really enjoyed it, sat still the whole time with his glued to the stage!
We go to theatres a lot, but this one didn’t live up to the expectations. It’s in such beautiful theater, but we booked the ticket to be seated in the second row which was a mistake! The stage is so high up and we practically had to be looking up the whole time. Mr. McGregor had strange face mask on it was very strange to watch especially when there were five of them singinging about how much he hates Peter. I get that he’s a big part of the story but there were two songs sang by him which wasn’t very warm nor pleasant to hear- this is meant to be kids show!!? We didn’t enjoy the main lady’s singing voice- it felt she was telling off Jamima all the time as her voice was very sharp- though lady singing Jamima had a wonderful warm voice. £33/ticket is one of the top prices I have paid for a show in london and I didn’t feel it was value for money, sadly. Puppets were clearly made and very pretty, and my six year old son had an ok time.
Puppets were amazing and so were the actors/actresses. It was a shame it wasn’t at least the hour advertised.
