The Little Company did it again! Our family thoroughly enjoyed Chicken Little and here are the best parts, according to us!
Sean likes that the play had mentions of bullies and teaches the children about bullying. It’s something that everyone can relate to and a great way for children to learn how to identify bullying when it’s happening. It might have only been played out at the beginning of the play, but having it presented in a more upbeat manner also made the topic less daunting to approach when we talked to the children about it after the show.
I like the fact that a big bulk of the show was dedicated to fear and how to overcome it, especially in times of trouble, one step at a time. It’s not just a story to teach the young ones how to face their fears, but also acts as a reminder to us parents to do the same. Don’t just talk the talk, know? And who knew becoming an adult and parent came with even more fears than before? I know I didn’t get that memo!
Blake sat a seat away from me, so I wasn’t able to observe him much during the show. After the show ended, I asked Blake what he liked most about the show, he said very simply, “The ending”. At first I thought it was because he didn’t really enjoy the show, but he revealed to me that he liked the show, but he loved the ending because that’s when the peacock appeared and he loved how magnificent it looked! Haha! I have to say though, the costumes in Chicken Little are so vibrant and clear as to whose who!
I didn’t have to ask Nakayla if she enjoyed the show. It was obvious she had a lot of fun! She laughed at all the gags, giggled when she heard something funny, she even jumped off her seat and started dancing along to the music and humming the tunes, trying to keep up and sing along (even though she has no clue what the lyrics are). Even after the show, she kept going on and on about the show and how cute Chicken Little looked!
Whilst we all have our own favourite parts, it was clear that our whole family enjoyed the show thoroughly! Seriously, The Little Company has been consistently putting up one great show after another this past year (granted we only started going this year. Haha!), and usually with only five actors playing all the roles. We are so looking forward to more amazing shows by The Little Company!
Join Chicken Little on her quest to save her fellow farmyard animals on a journey where she’ll meet a whole host of quirky, vibrant much-loved characters, including Cocky Locky, Ducky Daddles and the brave Turkey Lurkey. But with the fearsome Foxy Loxy on the loose, can they make it to the King alive?
