Family reviewer Jules Sparkles had a fabulously fun time at Tall Stories’ Wilde Creatures, and found some magic for everyone! Read her review below…
Wilde Creatures is based on the fairy tales of Oscar Wilde. Being true to the genre the tales are disturbing and moralistic, but performed in such a way as to be highly entertaining. The tone is set by four fabulous musicians who perform this wonderfully interactive show about friendship, knowledge and beauty. It is suitable for all ages; there was a sprinkling of toddlers, as well as a gang of heckling grannies on the back row, which was hysterical to hear them hurl abuse at the characters!
My thirteen year old agreed, “It was really good, funny and would recommend it to anyone”, despite the fact I had to pry her out of her bedroom to come see it! My sixteen year old thought “the tale was brought to life with the use of instruments and the musicians’ enthusiasm was contagious. It was high energy and funny, making it appealing to a diverse, eclectic audience.”
In fact, we all enjoyed the experience so much that we are treating ourselves later this month to The Canterville Ghost, which is also performed by the Tall Stories cast. We can’t wait!
Wilde Creatures continues its run until Sun 30 Dec and tickets can be purchased here. For more information about The Canterville Ghost, running from Tue 18 – Sun 23 Dec & Thu 27 – Sun 30 Dec 2018, click here.
