Your ears will be ringing with the catchy, interactive ‘thump it, bump it, bang it about…’ baking song, integral to this creative adaptation of the well loved tale of the folk in Itching Down and their rather unfortunate wasp infestation…
The book is wonderfully brought to life in this stage show by New Perspectives Theatre Company – the three actors brilliantly convey the handful of characters in the book, and along with some colourful songs and quick changes of hats, the audience is introduced to the likes of Mr. Bap the baker, Farmer Seed and of course, those pesky little wasps !! Plenty of interaction keeps the younger audience members fully entertained as they join in songs, search for hidden items under their seats and gasp in wonder as the enormous loaf of bread is eventually revealed.
Kazoos, helicopters, wasps and of course lots and lots of jam – this shows packs it all in, and is one sandwich that’s well worth tasting !!!
My mini reviewers say : ”It was so funny when the wasps were stuck in the jam….” ”When the bread was being cut and the most huge slice fell down – that was amazing…”
