Tales From The Shed (Chickenshed)

By | Published on Saturday 20 August 2011

As the audience take their seats, the performers are already on stage with a selection of puppets that the children are encouraged to go and play with.This kind of interaction plays a big part in the show, which comprises of songs with actions, games and stories: it’s a lot like watching a stage show of CBeebies, and although the songs are fairly forgettable, the children have a lot of fun joining in with the dances. The show’s at its best when being silly – a puppet called ‘Bleeeehhh’ is the definite highlight – but unfortunately the silliness doesn’t happen too often. Young children will be entertained, but mums and dads should be warned that they’ll probably be quite bored.

Zoo Roxy, 6 – 28 Aug (not 10, 17, 24), 10.30am (11.15am), £6.00, fpp29.
