Okay so this week it was the time that some people love to hate, some people dream about for weeks on end and others outright dread… Half term! And working in a theatre it also means it’s children’s show time!
This year the show of choice was Boing! a collaboration from Travelling Light and Bristol Old Vic. Capturing the excitement of two boys at bedtime on Christmas Eve, Boing! kept the young ones entertained from start to finish, despite the fact that the props consisted mostly of two stockings, a bed and two much loved teddy bears! An array of comedy, physical theatre and a splash of break dancing, the two performers were admirably full of energy and incredibly in sync with each other and their audience.
And as an extra bonus, in the true spirit of bed time, our uniform for the day was our pyjamas so it was definitely a onesie day!
And remember… If you want Santa to come, you have to go to sleep!
