"Magical family treat and a joy to watch."
Our young reviewers were entranced and we all came out feeling happy and Christmassy. Warm, gentle, magical and perfect for under-6s.
'Had my 4 year old captivated from start to finish!
The book is more for toddlers than it is for older children as it’s a basic story with just a few words to each page. How on earth could they make a show out of this? With ease it would seem as the show lasted for 40 minutes. Which was a good running time as most of the children watching were around 3-4 years of age.
We paid a family outing to the Shrewsbury theatre to watch Dear Santa, the stage production of Dear Zoo author Rod Campbell’s Dear Santa book. And it was by far the best family experience I have had at Christmas since my children have been born by far.
The show had a bit of everything to keep the kids entertained, sing along songs, arts and crafts and even gave a couple of the children the opportunity to get up on stage and get involved. The ideal start to the festive month.
We went to see dear Santa and my daughter loved it.
Thanks again for a wonderful experience.
