I don't know about you but I really love live theatre: I would go up to the West End each month if I could but as I like nice seats it has come to a point where we can barely afford it nowadays and that makes me sad.
I realise I've been missing a trick though as many of the best shows are not just limited to London West End they can be in more provincial theatres or even starting in London and then touring the country. I need to widen my horizons and I realised this when my husband gave me ticket for Dirty Dancing for Christmas. Not Dirty Dancing in the West End that might have cost us £120 for the two of us but Dirty Dancing at Eastbourne that costs just £40 for the two of us - result! I can't wait to go.
Babe, The Sheep-Pig
I'll tell you what else I can't wait to see at the theatre in Eastbourne and that is Babe, The Sheep-Pig, it looks so very clever. This new production is adapted from Dick King-Smith’s much-loved children’s novel which inspired the Oscar-winning 1995 film, and will feature stunning puppetry from the teams behind War Horse and Cirque de Soleil, bringing the characters of Hogget’s Farm to life on stage.
There is also an original score and an utterly charming ‘baa-ber sheep’ quartet. Babe, the Sheep-Pig tells the story of the lovable Babe in a heart-warming tale of friendship, adventure and bravery.
My kids are going to be so made up, all they have ever seen live so far is panto and they loved that so I think they will be mesmerised by this. Just take a look at this video and tell me you are not impressed -
Babe, The Sheep-Pig has already started its season at the renowned Children's Polka theatre in Wimbledon and will be going out on tour from 15th February 2017. The production will tour until 10th September 2017 and there are loads of venues whee you can see Babe, the Sheep-Pig - just take a look here - www.BabeThePigLive.com.
The show is sure to be great for all the family but the recommended age for children is 5-11 years.
