What they say: The enchanting world of CBeebies’ hit animated series Sarah & Duck will be brought to life on stage this Spring in a brand new theatrical adventure. Featuring a host of wonderful characters from the BAFTA Award-winning TV show, Sarah & Duck’s Big Top Birthday follows Sarah and Duck, along with all their favourite friends including The Ribbon Sisters, The Shallots, Flamingo and Umbrella, as they plan a circus-themed birthday party for Scarf Lady in their garden. Told through a fantastic blend of inventive puppetry, charming storytelling and toe-tapping music, and featuring all the familiar voices from the CBeebies series, Sarah & Duck’s Big Top Birthday will take families on a magical theatrical adventure.
What we say: “I took my son Jesse to see Sarah and Duck’s Big Top Birthday show at The Arts Depot in North Finchley.
We drove and parked in a underground car park which is easy accessible and only charged £2 for 90 minutes. A lift took us straight up to the Arts Depot main reception, we collected our tickets quickly and smoothly.
We had seats five rows from the front, the theatre was small but perfect for the amount of children and parents that attended. There seemed to be a wide range of different age children.
My son is 3 years of age and has developmental delays so I was concerned that he would get bored but he absolutely loved it! He sat and watched the whole show, Go Jesse!!
The show started swiftly and on time. in short, the show was about Sarah and Duck organising a big top birthday party for scarf lady (the forgetful old lady that loves to knit). This was told through puppetry, storytelling and music.
The puppeteers/actors got the children involved and also made the parents laugh! Overall a great show and I would defiantly go again.”
