Today we were fortunate enough to be invited to see the press show of Zog, at Cadogan Hall in London. The show is of course based on the famous Julia Donaldson book and is one of our favourites.
Freckles Productions and Rose Theatre Kingston have done such an amazing job of bringing this show to life! We have seen a few shows previously by Freckles Productions and would describe them as very quirky! They do tend to deviate away from the original story but at the same time, manage to keep the essence of the tale.
The lively dancing along with the aesthetics of the colourful puppets looks amazing but the singing is equally as incredible! Ita was absolutely transfixed.
The show is an hour long – perfect for a 3 year old. I would say this show is most suitable for 2-7 year olds and also the seating is spacious and comfortable too. (If you have “babes on laps” then you’ll understand why that’s good to know!!).
The show felt quite different from the book in that we felt it focused on Princess Pearl more than Zog. Although in all honestly I don’t think Ita noticed that!
Afterwards Ita got to meet the casts and puppets which she is still talking about almost 8 hours later!
This show is also part of London Theatres Kids Week which we have mentioned before.
That means that kids go free with every paying adult! Tickets to this show start at £18 so you can get a really good deal.
Zog is running up until 25 August 2019 and there are 2 shows per day during the week and 3 shows per day at the weekend.
I’ve popped the link below to purchase tickets with the offer mentioned!
Just so you know, those under 18 months are also FREE to this show.
