Kreestan Sennakie’s Magical Story Emporium (Quids In Theatre Company)

By | Published on Thursday 18 August 2011

I can’t help but feel a little sorry for Kreestan. When I reviewed him, his performance was undeniably hampered by the fact that the audience consisted of one small boy, his mother and grandmother, and me. This led to one or two awkward moments when he looked for audience participation that was never very forthcoming, but he pushed valiantly on with his act, consisting of stories and magic tricks, aided by a giant orange dog called Milo. He was an engaging, likeable performer, but in all honesty, his illusions were pretty mediocre and depended entirely on props that can be bought from any magic shop. That said, the small boy seemed happy enough, and the show was very reasonably priced.

theSpaces on North Bridge, 5 – 13 Aug (not 7), 11.10am (11.55am), £3.00 – £5.00, fpp24.
