Have your say

UNDER-tens will absolutely love this. As a parent, watching the 20 (or thereabouts) children in the audience totally absorbed in the performance was an absolute delight.


A simple story told by Toby Mitchell, with the help of several puppets, takes us through the auditions then finals of 
the monster equivalent of Britain’s Got Talent.

Mitchell knows how to communicate with children and has a natural, relaxed style.

His young audience stayed with him every step of the way, deciding which monsters should go through to the final or go in the bin, and then 
actually voting for the winner in the final.

Parents sitting on their hard low stools had little to entertain them except experiencing the 45-minute show vicariously through their kids . . . but then, this is a children’s show.

I did feel disappointed with the ending. It just stopped.

Until August 26
