That's a line out of the Roald Dahl book, The Witches. Along with "Children are revolting" and many other
I was lucky enough to be invited along to review the adaptation of the classic at the Monkey Baa theatre. I'd never been, despite having been asked to many of the shows by friends - the dates just never worked out for me. I was very excited to finally get there!
The space is a really good for kids, as it's intimate so no matter where you're seated, you feel part of the action. They also have activities in the foyer, before or after a show, usually themed with the production, so it's a great way to introduce kids to high quality theatre.
The Witches is, as you would expect, very funny, but you only have 4 more chances to see it at the lovely little theatre in Darling Harbour. My review is here, and you can buy tickets here. Perfect from 6 up, but still entertaining for the adults.
There was special 'after party' and low and behold I finally got to meet the lovely Seana Smith, after all these years of trailing around the web behind her.
Darling Harbour has all the Cool Yule holiday offerings, and that enormous playground is right at the entrance of the theatre, so you can really make a day of it.
This post is really just a thanks to Monkey Baa Theatre Company, as my whole entourage enjoyed the show (me included!!), and a heads up for people looking for some school holiday fun.
While the top two lines weren't used in the play, there was much raucous laughter every time the High Witch said 'Children smell like dog droppings'. Little wonder she was the firm favourite!
