Go Noah Go! review at Little Angel Theatre London
If there is one show parents should take their kids to see in London that is Go Noah Go!
This Caribbean adaptation of the Old Testament story is simply brilliant. The colourful and cleverly adaptable set and the wonderful puppetry are brought to life by Peter Savizon and Vanessa White-Smith, who act all the various roles.
The pair is perfectly cast for their sense of fun, ability to engage with the audience and beautiful voices which lend themselves well for a capella singing.
Both have the ability to seamlessly jump from one character, voice and accent to another.
The storytelling is captivating and supported by so many high points, such as the great set which gets morphed into an arch, a fantastic use of children in the front row to create an illusion of the flood, catchy songs and the magical puppetry.
Adults and children alike joined in the singing, clapping and loading the arch with beautifully crafted wooden animals, and there was never a shortage of laughter and wonderment.
The piece is unusually long for a children’s show, which may be a slight problem for some of the younger children, and coupled with the fairly scary beginning it is probably a good idea to not admit under four-year-olds.
