Theatre REVIEW: Children's Classic Concerts - The Three Little Pigs - ★★★★★

Children's Classic Concerts presents the phizz-whizzing orchestral performance, ‘Roald Dahl’s The Three Little Pigs’. Featuring CCC's very own 20-piece Essential Orchestra, this concert explores different instruments as they bring the author's most whoops-whiffling characters from the much-loved stories to life.

Whether you are new to the orchestra or know your piccolo from your tuba, this will be a swashboggling concert for all the family. Guaranteed to entertain even the most biffsquiggled Snozzwanger with fabulous performances, theatrical staging, crazy costumes and plenty of opportunities to join in.

"Children's Classic Concerts have taken Roald Dahl's 'Three Little Pigs', and with 'pure imagination' set the very funny poem from Revolting Rhymes to music. It's the middle part of an Orchestra concert of famous classical and jazz music, with some dance, slapstick and sign. All the music was inspired by different Dahl stories.

I loved how the orchestra were all dressed up as characters from different Roald Dahl stories.  Matilda played the violin, the Twits played percussion, and a witch played piano. The audience got to join in too. I really enjoyed the physical education class with Miss Trunchbull and Willy Wonka! 

My favourite parts of the show were Little Red Riding Hood's bang gun, and the medley of Charlie & The Chocolate Factory songs at the end. My dad really liked when Mr Fox stole someone's violin and was chased around the theatre, because it was the music from the audiobook of Fantastic Mr Fox he listened to when he was little.

Although this show is aimed at younger children I really enjoyed it. It was silly and exciting and had some music from one of the best children's musicals ever. 5 Stars!”


Make sure you have booked in for the latest DRAMA CLASSES at Mix Up Theatre throughout Scotland :)
