Joshua Seigal presents The Legend Of Ooshus Magooshus (And Lots Of Other Poems) (Joshua Seigal / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Thursday 29 August 2013

Joshua Seigal is exactly the kind of person to interest young children in poetry: performing without many of the assumed staples of successful children’s theatre, such as special effects or crude jokes, he nonetheless succeeds in gripping his small audience. Interactive enough to give the little ones something to do yet not so much that the parents felt bound to join in, Seigal’s poetry is gently amusing. With topics ranging from playground bullies to his own worst fear (an amusing twist) there is little opportunity for fidgeting or lost attention in this fast paced show. Perhaps a little on the long side for some younger audience members; otherwise well worth a look.

Cafe Camino, until 24 Aug, 2.30pm.
