The Smeds and The Smoos

The Smeds and The Smoos


‘Joy and jam and jumping’….I challenge anyone seeing this show to not leave singing this catchy tune ! Tall Stories have once again worked their magic and The Smeds and the Smoos is an enchanting performance that all children and parents will undoubtedly fall in love with…

Visually, the production, set and costumes were probably the best I have seen in any kids show so far this fringe. The actors were incredibly engaging, involving the audience throughout their journey without overegging this participation. The music was fun and uplifting, and the puppets brought a magical touch to the story and were very true to Axel Scheffler’s style of drawing. All in all, this show was a beautiful adaptation of Julia Donaldson’s much loved book with an important message for all children at the end. 

My little one danced and clapped most of the way through and we both left the theatre singing … Like I said – it’s very catchy!

My mini-reviewer said : ..I liked the rocket ships, and all the slime….it was funny ‘
