Took the children to see Cbeebies favourite Mister Maker and the Shapes live on Sunday and we were all thoroughly entertained. The television show is a firm favourite in our house and it’s hard not to be swept along on a tide of creative energy that is Mister Maker.
He’s very clearly crazy about craft and the fast-paced television show transfers well to the stage. Mister Maker is joined by four enthusiastic and energetic dancers and, of course, the enigmatic Shapes. There are also songs, some nice audience participation and the show has enough quick-witted repartee to keep us adults entertained.
The script is slick and anything that encourages children to be creative with art is good in my book – but then I am a stationery addict myself! My two older children loved it and our six-week-old baby didn’t seem to mind either. Highly recommended. 🙂
