This week we went and saw a performance of “George’s Marvellous Medicine” at QPAC.
We hadn’t found the time to reread the story
(we’d read it to the boys when they were small so they needed a refresher)
so I read it aloud in the car as hubby drove us into the city
and we sat in the carpark for the additional 20 minutes to finish the story
(Yes, we are weird like that).
If you haven’t already got tickets to the performance, hurry and see if there are any tickets left
(it’s playing until the 23rd January).
This performance was by far the very best children’s performance we have ever seen
(and we see about four every year).
The stage set was excellent.
The music was brilliant and had you tapping your feet.
The lighting was great.
The special effects were plentiful but ideal
(If you don’t like fog machines and strobe lights, you’d sadly better skip this performance).
The performers quickly and cleverly bought you into the world of George.
And the story was of course fantastic.
(Isn’t all of Roald Dahl’s stuff?!)
We loved that they kept pleasantly close to the text’s dialogue and storyline.
(We don’t like too much dabbling with the classics).
And funny…it was soooo funny.
It was laugh out loud funny…right to the very end.
“George’s Marvellous Medicine” is, by far, our favourite performance of all time.
We highly recommend it!
