ED2021 Children's Shows Reviews

You Choose (Nonsense Room Productions)

By | Published on Wednesday 11 August 2021

Drawing from the ubiquitous illustrated kids’ book of the same name, ‘You Choose’ invites the audience to make the choices which will be familiar to parents and small readers. Where will we go? What pet will we take? Who are our friends? And so on. Each of the choices is made through a series of light audience participation-based games and challenges, neatly led by our genial hosts. Proceedings are punctuated by songs, comic asides and a lot of shouting from – and this is the important thing – a thoroughly engaged young crowd. Even if there were a full kids’ events programme this year, you could still choose considerably worse than this. As it is, verging on a must see.

Assembly George Square, until 22 Aug.
