ED2012 Children’s Show Review: Giddy Goat (C Theatre)
By Eve Lacey | Published on Saturday 4 August 2012
Giddy has ‘vertigoat’ and the all-singing cast of this spirited show asks their audience to help him leap and bound. As he encounters goats who think they’re sheep and sheep who think they’re bulls, Giddy revels in inclusivity and unites the residents of Needle Mountain with the rams and lambs in the valley below. The script is a sharp and endearing adaptation of the popular book by Jamie Rix and C Theatre’s performers deliver the tale with infectious enthusiasm through rap, Disney-esque ballads and baa-baa-shop quartets. The big goats onstage beam with encouragement as they garner bleats and cheers from the kids in the audience before inviting them to shake their hooves for the final chorus of the ‘Giddy Go’ dance.
C, 1-27 Aug (not 14), 12.15pm.
