JadielPenn's review of CBeebies Live

“Fairly good, but overpriced and scared my son!”


written by JadielPenn on 21/04/2014

We just saw the Cbeebies live show in Liverpool. I'd never been to one before so wasn't sure what to expect. I was a little disappointed to find such a disparity between his favourite shows and the live performance, but I guess many of them are hard to translate to a stage. There was a strong musical theme which would have been fine, but unfortunately the songs (although v lively) were not ones that toddlers can sing along to. By the end he was dancing along a bit and enjoying it, but more singalong songs would have been good. The worst bit was an eerie scene in an old abandoned laboratory, covered in cobwebs and littered with rubbish, when echoing moans and groans announce the arrival of the 'trashmonster'. This was a Chinese dragon-style creation, carried aloft above 3 stage hands, with red glowing eyes appearing brightly in the smoky air above the dimly lit stage. Although the monster appeared only for one song (Monster Mash), my little boy was so scared that even half an hour later, as the second half was starting, he was still saying he wanted to go home. Other little ones around us were also scared and scrambling into parents' laps. I find that completely unnecessary in a show aimed at preschoolers. On the whole, I am glad I took him as it was an experience he will remember for a long time, but there was certainly room for improvement, considering the price of the tickets.
