Venue: Pleasance Courtyard
18 August 2011 WOS Rating: If you’re looking for something to keep the kids entertained, then Snow Play at Pleasance Courtyard is worth a look.
This was a sell-out at the Lyric Hammersmith in London and looks set to enjoy further success at the Fringe.
Starring Patrick Lynch from Cbeebies and Carlo Rossi from children’s TV in Italy,
Snow Play is a sweet show in which children can have a go at building a giant snowman and take part in a snowball fight.
The story is simple - Mr Green comes back from holiday to find Mr White has covered his house in snow. With the help of a couple of mums and kids, Mr Green tries to get rid of Mr White, but can he clear the snow?
As you would expect, chaos ensues, particularly in the snowball fight, but little ones will love the show and even adults with the hardest of hearts will thaw a little at the lovely effects used to distribute the snow throughout the audience.
- Julie McNicholls
