This week’s Star family reviewers are Kerry and Jez Kemp and their twins Molly and Oliver Kemp, aged five, who live in Killamarsh. They went to see Nickelodeon’s Dora the Explorer LIVE! at Sheffield’s Lyceum Theatre. This is what they thought.
Dora is my favourite character on TV so when my mummy told me that we were going to see Dora Live! I was so excited.
I joined in with Dora and Boots as they tried to get Dora’s teddy Osito back from the City of Lost Toys. I loved the whole show especially the singing and dancing and I was able to join in which was brilliant. We were given some blue stars which we had to wave in the air when Dora asked us to and at the end of the show loads of bubbles fell from the ceiling. It was FAB
I thought that Dora Live! was really good. My favourite character was Boots the Monkey he was very funny and was a good dancer and singer. I liked it when Diego came on the stage he told us about some different animals in the jungle and the noises that they make. He did a song and dance and taught us the moves. Baby Jaguar came on the stage, he was sad as he had lost his squeaky toy so Dora told him that she would get it back from the City Of Lost Toys. I loved the ending when we popped lots of bubbles.
Dora Live! was an excellent show, the format is very true to the TV series so all of the children and most of the adults in the audience could sing along with the songs throughout. The show consisted of two 30-minute parts with a 20-minute interval which I thought was just the right length to hold the children’s interest.
All characters from the show appear and are life size rather that a performer holding a puppet which seemed to be a big hit with the kids. It was quite interactive, all the children were given stars as they entered the theatre and were asked to wave them during the show.
Even though the theatre wasn’t full the atmosphere was lovely, the show ended with bubbles falling from the ceiling and a big song from Dora and gang.
I would say for any Dora fan the show was magical.
