On a chilly December night, 2 country children headed into the metropolis of good old Salisbury to see Dick Whittington at the Playhouse.
The show went down well with the adults, but what did the 7 and 8 year olds think?
Eden aged 7 “I liked it because some of the actions were funny and the cat’s singing voice was really nice. It was funny when Dick’s mum, silly Willy, made us shout back ‘you are a silly willy’. That made everyone laugh, fairy Bow Bells had a pretty costume. What I didn’t like was that some jokes didn’t make sense to me as I’m not old enough but mummy was laughing. I would say go and watch it because its good fun and the people in it expressed what they felt on their faces which was really realistic.”
Cam aged 8: “Dick Whittington was really good. The baddie, King Rat, was really realistic because he said some very funny jokes, had a really cool outfit and his voice sounded evil. Dick was funny because he kept making jokes about Salisbury in a Wiltshire voice, his dancing was really good. I’d say go and see it because it was funny and it was very family ish.”
