We all had a fantastic time, and both our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I spent a lot of the performance just watching their faces because they were so animated and engaged! Being a relaxed performance definitely helped a great deal as well we felt under no pressure to make our son conform to the norms of theatre going, and having the actors introduce themselves at the start was a good way of demystifying the experience.
Some pretty odd ideas are floating around Pauls street. Theres Mabel, whose brother hides under a brown paper bag. And Clarence the poodle who thinks he can fly. But Paul has the oddest idea of all. He thinks that the moon is a big hole in the sky and hes going to climb into it…
