Children transported

Review by Candice Lewis 14th Jul 2014

There are plenty of beauty pageant smiles, pretty hairdos (Clare Cairns) gorgeous costumes, catchy songs and fun dances throughout this 45 minute fairy inspired romp. I may not be convinced that love emanates from the pores of each grinning fairy, but I am not three years old!  

This show is aimed at children in the 3-9 age group. From the ‘baking cakes’ outset, the fairies are getting ready for the Wonderful Winter Wollie Flopp. What is that? An excuse to find the perfect shoes in which to dance and eat too much cake. 

What could possibly get in the way? Pixie Pete (Stephen Lunt) just can’t keep away from the cakes! Oh no! Lunt has a genuine air of lovable naughtiness as a Pixie with a penchant for profiteroles and telling porkies. 

The ensuing story contains a morality tale (The Boy Who Cried Wolf) and Pixie Pete’s porkie pies soon catch up with him. 

The fairy essence of love is truly present in Fairy Page (Jessie Lawrence). From the moment she graces the stage, I think “yes, there’s a real fairy!” 

When songs are performed, they are backed up by a recording which seems a little cheap and distracting. It gives a strange impression to the performance, a little too ‘lip-synchrastic’ for my liking, but certainly isn’t detracting from the children’s enjoyment.

Accompanying me on this adventure is a friend and her three year old daughter.  I have borrowed a discerning six year old girl, and both girls are spellbound. I keep looking at them throughout the show and their little faces reflect complete delight. We all agree that Fairy Page is our favourite. Almost every child in the audience is able to focus on this 45 minute show (which is quite a feat).  Miss 3 is so excited that she sometimes blurts things out and talks to the fairies, she’s so involved!

I ask the girls what rating they would give the show. Both agreed 10/10. So there you have it; even if you find it hard to sit still for this fairy foray into excess cake and shoe consumption, your children will be transported!
