New to Canberra, I love exploring this city and the secrets that it holds with my family.
Rug up your kids, grab Humpty and get out to this fun show
If you find you are enjoying "Play School" just as much as your pre-schooler does, then the "Play School" live show is for you (and your child of course!).
It is an interactive show with songs and stories directed at the kids, and the odd joke for the Mums and Dads. This year the show is titled "Once Upon a Time" and the two presenters from the show will take us on a storybook journey designed to stimulate the kids imagination with games and songs. It also includes quiet moments (for your young one to sit in your lap for a cuddle) to keep them engaged for the full 40 minutes.
Last year, Miss Three (then Miss Two) and I went to see the show when it came to Canberra. As "first timers" to kids live shows, I was taken aback that the cost was $17.60 per ticket (child and adult), so it would be over $35 in total for a 40 minute show.
Now I see what good value that is, as we both thoroughly enjoyed the show - and later in the year we went to see the "Giggle and Hoot Show" at the Canberra Theatre and paid $45...each! So I now appreciate that this show is very well priced.
Last year we watched Teo (even more hilarious in real life) and Rachel own the stage at Albert Hall at Yarralumla - however for this year check the "Kids Promotions" website closer to the time if you want to know who will be presenting at the Canberra show.
There is seating around the outside if you wish, however most of the audience sits on the floor so the kids can get up and down to dance when they want. They open the doors about 10 minutes prior - it is a large hall with plenty of room.
After the show there is a table set up with toys and souveniers that you can buy from the show - reasonably priced so that you don't need to break the bank to buy a small (or large) toy if you wish.
We have our tickets and both look forward to going to the 2015 "Play School" live show - I guarantee you will come out with a huge smile on your face and some quality memories with your young one...and the "Play School" song imbedded in your brain for at least a few days.
