On Wednesday morning I took my 24 month son to see Dear Zoo at the Palace Theatre in Westcliff-on-Sea. I was slightly concerned that Harvey might have been too young and that the show might not hold his attention but that wasn’t the case, he thoroughly enjoyed the show from beginning to end. It was great to see the classic story come alive on stage.
The show was approximately 55mins long and had no interval. The stage was bright and colourful and my son was fixated on the beautiful visuals. The set and props were matched very well to Rod Campbell’s original illustration and all crates and animals came to life in front of us. The actors also got the audience to interact with counting, singing, roaring and hissing which kept all the little ones and big ones entertained.
I would recommend Dear Zoo the Stage Show to all with young children as it was a great experience.
