Magic Roman’s Summer Holidays (Chip And Pin Theatre)

By | Published on Wednesday 17 August 2022

Magic Roman is on his way to Blackpool to take part in the sandcastle-building championsh… oh, never mind – this is a winsome, energetic and participatory magic show peppered with songs and gags. Actually, the ‘plot’ doesn’t always help: a couple of the segments where Magic Roman interacts with pre-recorded bits don’t quite help the momentum and the finale is slightly underwhelming. Nevertheless, the enthusiastic ability to work a young room and gain their committed buy-in, along with some genuinely impressive magical shenanigans, make this a decent addition to the remains of your summer holiday, with the children more or less sure to be involved and entertained.

Gilded Balloon Patter Hoose, until 28 Aug.
