Last week we attended the press performance of Peter rabbit live at Theatre Royal Haymarket (tickets kindly gifted.) It is a lovely show for younger children and I also enjoyed the beautiful performance.
Beatrix Potter’s short stories are brought to life on the stage, through puppetry, storytelling and songs. Jai has always loved Peter Rabbit, so this was a special show for him.
The puppets are really lovely and even though the puppeteer is Standing right behind them, your eyes are always on the puppets. Jai’s favourite character is definitely Mr McGregor, who’s scenes were hilariously funny. I personally loved the music and the upbeat nature of the show. There is never a dull moment on the stage, there was always something going on to keep eyes transfixed.
The recommended age for Peter rabbit live is 3+ although you can bring younger children at your own discretion! I brought along Mila and she was as good as gold. She actually watched the whole show and was mesmerised by it! The length of the show is only 50 minutes, which was perfect for both Jai and Mila.
This lovely show is a part of Kids week, which offers a free child’s ticket to the theatre, when a full paying adult ticket is purchased. This is a great way to save some money as the theatre can be expensive. It’s such a lovely thing to do though, and a special day out, perfect for a summer holiday treat.
