The Peasant Prince

07 Jul

Gosh there are a lot of excellent theatre performances for kids.

Taking your children to the theatre is a must.

They will just love it and it’s so well worth it.

And if you go to your local theatres,

rather than bigger theatres,

it is reasonably priced.

For a family, we pay around $70 for our favourite theatre.

Yes, it’s still expensive but it’s one of those special events that is worth the money.

We have just been to a performance of “The Peasant Prince”.

It was wonderful.

There were only four actors but they skillfully played the parts of many characters.

And with so few props.

(Although, they made clever use of a multi-media screen).

Actors are talented people

and we are aiming to raise an appreciative audience.

If you get a chance to see “The Peasant Prince”,

jump at the opportunity.

But make sure you read the book it is based on first.

Knowing a little something about the performance

always enhances the experience.

In a few weeks we are off to see “Snugglepot and Cuddlepie”.

I can’t wait!

    We will have to choose between Peasant Prince and Snugglepot and Cuddlepie – they are playing only a week apart here. Such a shame the scheduling has been terrible this year – there has been nothing much for children all year and now we will get The Little Prince, The Peasant Prince, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie all in 6 weeks! I look forward to your review of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie to help me decide which one we will choose!

      It’s exactly the same here. The shows are usually one per term, but this year three have fallen within a 6 week period. It must be due to the schedules of the performance groups as they travel around the place.
      If you’re children are younger, at this point, I would suggest Snugglepot. The Peasant Prince is better for the older crowd who know something about communism and Mao.
      My boys are teens but we chose to go to Snugglepot and Cuddlepie simply because it’s a classic Australian story and good theatre performances should be ageless.
      But I shall let you know what we think when we see Snugglepot next week.

      Having seen both performances, I would say both are excellent and it would be hard to choose between. The only way I would be able to choose is by saying, if you have younger children, go to Snugglepot and if you have older ones, go to Peasant Prince. Little guys might struggle with the content of Peasant Prince, not having a background about communism and Mao. But older guys could enjoy either performance really. Mine liked both.
