Our visit to Wolf!
We were lucky enough to be invited by the Northam Theatre Group to the first showing of Wolf! today. Maddison and I were very excited to see the show and to support local talent.
We entered the theatre, to an incredible set with doors, fireplace, table and couch.
The excitement and chatter of the audience in anticipation made the experience even more amazing.
Wolf! is based on two wonderful children’s stories ‘The Lamb Who Came to Dinner by Steve Smallman’ and ‘Pig’s Fairytale Adventure by Alain Brian’ both featuring the ever favourite Wolf.
The fairy tale cast includes a pig, a wolf, Red Riding Hood, Prince Charming, Sleeping Beauty, the witch and lots of lovable lambs.
The Wolf played by Les Lee and Hot Pot the Lamb played by Michelle Chan had us laughing at their interactions and uniquely funny script.
Maddison’s favourite character was Hot Pot who made the wolf realise he was lonely and needed a friend.
In the foyer during intermission, children participated in a craft activity to make their own pig or lamb puppet.
Maddison chose to make a lamb with her paper plate and had a great time working and socialising with the other children.
After intermission we were transported to the farmyard where Pig traveled to The Land of Fairy Tales and learnt a valuable lesson about appreciating his life.
Maddison sat on the edge of her seat watching as lots of her favorite fairy tales came to life on stage. She loved Red Riding Hood and the bleating lambs.
Wolf! is a wonderful play for children of all ages and the young at heart. The last two shows are tomorrow Sunday 20th October showing at 10.30am and 1.00pm tickets are available at the door for $10.
