ED2012 Children’s Show Review: The Enormous Turnip (Spotlites Theatre Productions)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Children's Shows Reviews

Spotlites present ‘The Enormous Turnip’ as part of a varied programme of interactive children’s theatre for tots to twelve, this show being one for the littlest of luvvies. Showing at times suitable for the age group (4.10pm for 45 minutes), this is a delightful introduction to performance. Seeds of fun planted here should blossom into an interest in drama. Participation is not essential, however; my usually shy six-year-old clung to my leg at the start, but by the end edged his way to the stage, ooh-ing to warn the farmer of the seed-thief’s approach. Whatever I think doesn’t matter; my son, staring at his turnip seeds on the way home, said ‘’I loved that show’’.

Spotlites @ The Merchants’ Hall, 4 -18 Aug (even dates only), 4.10pm.
