Theatre REVIEW: Disney's Bedknobs and Broomsticks - ★★★★★

Enter a world of magic and fantasy as Disney’s classic movie Bedknobs and Broomsticks makes its world premiere as an exciting new stage musical. With the original songs by the legendary Sherman Brothers (Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), including Portobello Road, The Age Of Not Believing, The Beautiful Briny, and new music and lyrics by Neil Bartram and book by Brian Hill; Bedknobs and Broomsticks will be brought to life by award-winning theatre-makers Candice Edmunds and Jamie Harrison.

When the three orphaned Rawlins children are reluctantly evacuated from wartime London to live with the mysterious Eglantine Price, they have no idea what adventures lie ahead. Upon discovering Eglantine to be a trainee witch, they join forces to search for a secret spell that will defeat the enemy once and for all. Armed with an enchanted bedknob, a bewitched broomstick and a magical flying bed, they encounter surprising new friendships on their journey from Portobello Road to the depths of the beautiful briny sea.

Thursday 17th February - Archie & Maddie

Archie (Age 9) - ★★★★★

Maddie (Age 7) - ★★★★1/2 (because I got scared!)

"We absolutely loved this show and it is easily one of the best shows we have ever seen. It was completely magical - we couldn’t figure out how lots of the tricks were done. Our favourite trick was the bed flying. We loved the animal puppets. The set, lighting and costumes were amazing. All the actors were good especially the kids - Charlie was our favourite.

We thought that the songs and dancing were great. Maddie's favourite song was "Miss Price, I Believe" and Archie's was "Negotiality".

Our favourite scene was the magician stealing necklaces. Our second favourite scene was under the sea. We both really like history so was really interested in World War II detail (Archie liked the bit at the end with the nazis but Maddie didn’t).

This show is soooo good and fab-u-lous!"
