The Gruffalo

On Friday, I got to see The Gruffalo at the Lyric Theatre with the two young children I nanny. It’s the latest production of Tall Stories, a registered charity organisation that puts on beautiful shows for children of all ages. The Gruffalo is recommended for ages 3+ and if you like the book, you will…

The Tales Of Peter Rabbit And Jemima Puddle Duck

For the May half-term, Wilton’s Musical Hall put on a junior classical production of The Tales Of Peter Rabbit & Jemima Puddle-Duck, so I took along my two little charges to see the show.

The Slightly Annoying Elephant

In my job as a nanny, I get to see children’s theatre shows quite a bit. This time we went down to the Little Angel theatre to see their production of The Slightly Annoying Elephant, a fun little show based on the same book by David Williams. The Little Angel Theatre puts on all kinds…

The Flying Bath

I love to take my charges to the theatre, so am always on the look out for their age group. The Flying Bath was listed at 2-5yrs and thus seemee perfect! Based on the book by Julia Donaldson and David Roberts, it’s a very simple and cute story, adapted to a fun bath time adventure…

The delightful children’s story The Hunting Of The Snark made a stop in London and I just had to go and see it! Based on the wonderful stories by Lewis Carroll, this play is absolutely delightful. Driven by a highly energetic four-piece cast, the play follows a group of adventurers on their hunt for the legendary Snark,…

Buried Child

When I had the chance to see Ed Harris in Burried Child, I jumped at the opportunity. Especially because I love the Trafalgar Studio as a venue, it has great seating and a good view from most seats. When the auditorium was opened, Harris already sat on the sofa on stage, wrapped up in a…

Santa’s New Sleigh

In my daytime life, I am a nanny for a 3yr old girl. I was invited to take her and a friend of hers (as well as another nanny and a mommy) to see Santa’s New Sleigh, a small Christmas performance upstairs at the Arts Theatre. The children were very excited, doors opened quite late…
