ED2014 4/5 Reviews ED2014 Children's Shows Reviews

Excuse Me Mrs Pardon (Theatre Tots Ltd)

By | Published on Saturday 23 August 2014

It’s always difficult to choose a show for toddlers and pre-schoolers, because even good children’s shows can be too slow moving, or require a bit too much concentration, or it might just be too hard to keep up with the plot. ‘Excuse Me Mrs Pardon’ is a perfect show for younger viewers (though my seven year old, probably not of the target market, had a really good time too) because it’s got a very simple theme, engagingly and colourfully executed, with lots of moments of accessible humour along the way. It’s really all about using your imagination, and sees the title character growing all sorts of improbable things in her ‘garden’. Lots of fun, and delivered with a huge amount of energy.

theSpace @ Surgeon’s Hall, until 23 Aug.
