Christmas show review: The Snow Queen – An Online, Storytelling Adventure

Dec 21 2020

There are many activities to get the kids busy with over the Christmas holidays. The Snow Queen: An Online, Storytelling Adventure, adapted and directed by Natasha Rickman, presented by the Iris Theatre has plenty of interactions for the families with very young children (for ages 4+) and runs until 26 December. It is recommended for a very young audience. As a parent of a teenager I could not relate any longer. But I could see children on zoom very intrigued by the stoy and involved in the activities.

Young Family Panto: Dear Santa Live at Riverside Studios

Dec 08 2020

Last weekend I went to the Riverside Studios in Hammersmith to watch Dear Santa Live, a Christmas Panto aimed at young families, with two lovely school girls who had a great time.  After months of lockdown, we have all been craving the return of live performance and were happy to get out to the theatre. Dear Santa Live is a great way to be part of a live audience (safely) after a year spent in isolation. 

Dear Santa Live is the first production of the Riverside Studios 2020 Christmas season. Norwell Lapley Productions’ stage adaptation of Rod Campbell’s family-favourite and much-loved picture book. Dear Santa Live, directed by Tim Wallers runs until 24 December 2020. At the end of the show, children can say hallo to Santa (at a socially distanced grotto appearance) and receive a Christmas themed gift bag.

The season at Riverside Studios includes a dazzling array of live cabaret, comedy, music and theatre that run throughout December.
