If you’re looking for a short, sharp and interactive children’s show to get the whole family in the festive spirit, this is a sure-fire hit with youngsters and big kids alike.
With Ellie the Elf, Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, the man in the big red suit with the white beard, also known as Santa, and the star of the show, the robot! The story is a heart-warming tale of a robot who has been lovingly crafted by Santa for a little boy and who has inadvertently rusted, therefore rendered unable to move and to process information. The latter of the robot’s unfortunate traits was found most hilarious by many sniggering children in the audience!
Rudolph is played by a puppet who is incredibly engaging and delighted my toddler, Santa was jolly and looked like the man himself – maybe he was? Then there was Ellie the Elf who was vibrant, energetic and kept the flow and pace of the show going, throughout.
Popular songs were included for the audience to sing, dance and clap along with and the opportunity to meet the cast and take home a special gift from Santa was an added and unexpected bonus. Congratulations to the cast who were all superb and made my little boy very happy. It’s aimed at ages 2-6 years and a great way to kick off the festivities.
The show stays at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry until Christmas Eve, after which Santa and his team will be busy elsewhere! The link for more information or to book tickets is here: http://www.belgrade.co.uk/event/santas-rusty-robot
