CtrlAltRepeat’s award-winning immersive theatre show Viper Squad, a lovingly-crafted, tongue-in-cheek homage to 1980s action classics and point-and-click adventure games, is back every Friday from 29 January 2021. Viper Squad: Remastered takes the original and dials it all up to 11.
You will quickly feel involved, in Viper Squad and have to think on your feet, retain a lot of information and trust your instincts. The Viper Squad relies on you.
A rare summer in the city for me means I can take in some of the family shows on in the West End right now – including Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear the Musical, The Scarecrow’s Wedding, Where is Peter Rabbit? and Monstersaurus.
My one grudge against the Old Laundry’s loving Beatrix Potter production Where is Peter Rabbit? – first aired three years ago – is that they waited till my youngest toddler was 31.
The Scarecrows’ Wedding is a stage adaptation of the bestselling book by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler. It’s a love story about two scarecrows – Betty O’Barley & Harry O’Hay – who decide to get married.
There are pros and cons to the stage version by Scamp Theatre, musically it’s a strong production but visually it lacked the stimuli to hold my toddler’s attention and the same could be said for fellow pre-school theatre-goers sitting in the stalls.
he evening started well with a small selection of the cast moving amongst us whilst we sat in the bar full of anticipation waiting for the house to be opened. The beautiful costumes and frivolity of the cast infectiously encouraging us to enjoy and join their glamorous, roaring twenties party.
