Today we are launching a new family reviews section on this page, where readers and their families go to see a show and everyone tells us what they thought.
Our first family are Suzie Huntington from Brightside in Sheffield and her daughters Isobelle Smith, aged 10, Lucie Smith, aged 8, and their friend Lucy Goddard, aged 11. They went to see the Chuckle Brothers’ show Meet the Phantom at the Theatre at the Lyceum in Sheffield. If your family would like to do a review, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Mum’s view: We all really enjoyed the show and it was Lucy’s first time to the theatre.
In the days before the show the girls were practising magic tricks from Youtube and learned some pretty clever and convincing tricks and I think this is the great thing about theatre, it goes beyond the show and always inspires the children.
The girls were laughing the whole way through and the show was entertaining for adults too with lots of adult jokes and a good range of music. It’s always good to see a show at the Lyceum, it’s such a beautiful theatre. There wasn’t a dull moment, the pace was great the whole show through, there were lots of new jokes and current music.
Lots of singing and puppets, lots of clapping along. Also a talent show where four children were picked from the audience and asked questions to win goody bags.
Lucy Goddard’s view: My fav part of the show was when Barry was in the box and Paul was putting a sword through his head and kept saying “oh”, “oh…oh” but then bobbed down.
Amazing, fantastic, brilliant, superb, excellent, hilarious.
Lucie Smith’s view: I think it was really funny. My favourite bit was when he was chopping his head off.
