Finally the day was eventually here,
I’d booked the tickets and waited a year.
We got up early – out of bed,
We bathed and got ready for the day ahead.
We dressed ourselves up in our piggy clothes.
George on his jumper, Peppa on my toes.
We got to the theatre with plenty of time,
Then waited for the 5 minute warning chime.
The bell went off so we rushed to our seats,
All very careful not to drop our sweets.
We found our seats in the front row,
Almost on the stage, in the show.
The curtains went up and Daisy shot on,
Searching for her friends that appeared to have gone. (Daisy is a human friend, she narrates the scenes.)
From behind the set the characters appeared,
All but Peppa who had disappeared.
Peppa crept on playing peekaboo,
The children all shouted “she’s behind you”.
The school day starts with a musical play,
Singing and dancing like Broadway.
The school bus arrives to end the first half,
Daddy Pig collecting the children and staff.
The class board the bus and the journey begins.
The curtains close as the cast laugh and sings.
Bong bing boo, bing bong bing, bing bong bingly bungly boo. Bong bing boo, bing bong bing, bing bong bingly bungly boo.
When the curtains open we’d arrived at camp.
The only light on stage came from a lamp.
The class then go on a hunt for logs,
Whilst searching in the woods they found some frogs.
The frogs joined the party along with some flies;
Whilst owls and bats swooped in the skies.
It started to rain and the audience got wet.
A gentleman with a water pistol at the side of the set.
The children loved it and joined in the fun.
Muddy puddle jumping with everyone.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story and show,
I was sad when it finished and it was time to go.
The show was clever and the characters cute.
Puppets on wheels and not people in a suit.
I dont know about yours, but my son hates those.
Adults in costumes in great big clothes.
My only moan is that it seemed pricey to me.
£20 a seat with babies go free. (average ticket price. Cost varies at each location.)
The shows duration was just over a hour,
With a break in the middle it left me quite sour.
Although I appreciate it’s a show for young,
For twenty quid a ticket a felt I’d been stung.
The children weren’t fretting or bored quite yet,
Infact when it finished they were all upset.
I guess however that means one thing,
I’ll be booked again soon for another sting.
