“Somewhere, hidden amongst the thorny brambles is a little kingdom where everyone is very very small…”
From the makers of Peppa Pig comes this BAFTA award-winning television animation live on stage!
Holly is a young Fairy Princess, who is still learning how to fly and her magic doesn’t always go quite according to plan. Her best friend, Ben the Elf, doesn’t have wings and he doesn’t do magic, but he runs very fast and flies on the back of Gaston the Ladybird. They live in the Little Kingdom, a tiny land where flowers and grass rise high above them and every day is an adventure.
Ben and Holly have fun and games helping Gaston the Ladybird clean up his messy cave, they go on a trip to The Big World with tooth-fairy Nanny Plum, even plan a surprise birthday party for King Thistle, and oops, let’s hope there’s not another jelly flood!
Join Ben and Holly, and their friends on this exciting, enchanting and magical musical adventure packed full of games, songs and laughter. This beautiful story of elves, princesses and childhood innocence will delight all the family!
Review Of Ben & Hollys Little Kingdom
Today we went to see Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom; it was quite an endearing little show for the children.
I wondered how they would be able to pull Ben and Holly’s look off in getting the characteristics correct.
I think they did a splendid job With papier-mâché heads of the characters and in following the general design of how they would’ve dressed so they were plain and straightforward in the clothes that they would wear.
Gaston was actually like an electronic ladybird and was able to be pushed around and sat on him.
There were all different kinds of props that were on stage some of which were a good use of props.
Nanny Plum and her magic cauldron making cold medicine for King Thistle,
The cast involved the audience trying to get them to point where Ben and Holly were hiding, and naughty Holly using magic to hide! Oh, dear, poor Ben Elf.
We even got to meet the little girl called Lucy!
Sang happy birthday to King Thistle even though he wasn’t glad for being a year older.
‘Children love their birthdays had to giggle at that thought.’
The stage set up was cleverly organised, in making minimal changes for the scenes needed. Using folding doors giving two options for each scene required.
There were some minor things but being kiddies show it wasn’t a massive problem.
It was lovely to see the little ones smiling and hearing them enjoy the show
