This charming, funny, yet hard hitting performance tells the story of a Queen Bee and her Worker Bee as they try to find a new home and re-build their hive through the medium of circus and physical theatre. The performers themselves do an amazing job of telling us this story without any words, and even manage to address some complex issues such as the affect that the Australian bushfires had on the bee population. There are moments of joy, sadness and comedy throughout, and some very impressive acrobatics and circus skills which kept all the little ones and adults mesmerised.
The performers clearly care a lot about the message behind Bee Story, and they make themselves available for photos and signed posters after the show. They are so happy to chat to all the children which only adds to the whole experience, and there is even the option to buy a cute bee t-shirt as a souvenir with all proceeds going to charity!
My 4-year-old really enjoyed this show although, I would say that some of it did go over his head a little and it probably would be best suited for this age or a little older.
My mini reviewer said : “I loved all the juggling and when the Queen bee made herself super tall on top of the other bee’s shoulders on to reach the pollen”
