All parents know of the bestselling book, ‘Guess How Much I Love You’ by Sam McBratney and now it has been brought to life in this stage adaptation, that is fantastic for an introduction to theatre for the little ones.
This playful musical is introduced by Mother Nature who appears on stage by waving to all of the children in the audience and sets the scene for the story to begin. Keeping the lights low with calming songs, it is brilliant for 3-year olds and over.
The wonderfully interactive show gives the children gentle encouragement to join in with the dancing. Joshua was the first one up on his feet shouting, “Dada, me sing and dance too!” with a smile beaming from ear to ear throughout the entire show. The hide and seek scene also had the little ones laughing! The interactive parts of the show brings the cast together with their little audience, making it such a perfect experience for them (and the parents!).
Big and Little Nutbrown Hare are joined by Mother Nature in their watercolour scenery that changes and moves before your little one’s eyes, to go with the changing seasons and storytelling. There is also some great puppetry, which tells the story of how the animals change along with the seasons.
‘Guess How Much I Love You’ is currently on a UK tour but catch it quick before the shows moves on from Lowestoft! There are two further showings on Wednesday 28th March at 10:30am and 4:30pm – so get booking quick!
