Days Out | Twirlywoos Live at St Helens Theatre Royal [Gifted Review]

It's been a few years now since we first became fans of the TV show Twirlywoos. In that time we have watched all the episodes, collected the Twirlywoo teddies and played with The Big Red Boat and last weekend we got to see the Twirlywoos Live at St Helens Theatre Royal.

The Theatre Royal is a small theatre close to home and it's the perfect location for a children's stage show because you have a great view from every seat in the stalls. Little J has only been to a theatre a few times but I knew he would like this because not only does he like the TV show but the theatre itself isn't too overwhelming for little ones.

The show began with two of the performers coming in to the audience with the 'Quacky Birds'. One came right up to little J and was quacking, little J managed to give him a stroke.

An important announcement was made that you can take photos of the show however you must turn off the flash.

Next all four performers took to the stage to introduce the stars of the show, the Twirlywoos.

Twirlyloos Live has everything that you love from the TV show. The Big Red Boat, Peekaboo, The Quacky Birds and even The Very Important Lady.

The Twirlywoos receive a letter to say the are going to have a visit from someone very important and they must get their boat ready with decorations. Soon they hear the horn on their boat blow and its time to fly off on their first adventure, to the Launderette.

The Twirlywoos learn all about pulling on their adventure to the Launderette and get up to lots of mischief along the way. The kids in the audience enjoyed when the bubbles from the soap powder blew out over our seats as we sang along to a song about popping bubbles.

The Twirlywoos have time for one more adventure before their special visitor arrives and this time they head to a Pizza restaurant. Here they learn all about rolling as they make pizza with lots of weird and wacky ingredients.

When they arrive back at the Big Red Boat there is somebody at the door. It's The Very Important Lady. She arrives and sings a song, enjoys her party and it's time for her to go. The Twirlywoos wave bye bye then it's time for us to go to as its the end of the show.

The Twirlywoos Live has a running time of 55 minutes which is perfect for the target audience. Little J really enjoyed it, joining in when asked and singing along to the theme tune. I thought that as the performers are controlling the Twirlywoos like puppets that it would be distracting but it wasn't and they did a great job.

There are still a few dates left and you can find out more by visiting Twirlywoos Live UK Tour.

  3. How cute! We haven't taken the little one to see any shows yet, but I think he's reached the age where he'd sit up and take notice. The sing along part would certainly go down well. Xx

  4. Ahh this looks great, I think the theatre really does engage little ones from early on. Especially with all the lights and sounds. 55 minutes is a perfect length for little ones too.
