What’s the idea?
Love ‘The Midnight Gang’? The musical adaptation of this much-loved book is being streamed online for free by the Chichester Festival Theatre!
What’s the story?
I am always looking out for ways to keep the kids entertained at home.
So I was pleased to find that The Chichester Festival Theatre are streaming their hugely succesful 2018 production of The Midnight Gang, for free!
As parents of an 8 year old boy, we are always happy to find books to read to our son, that we also enjoy reading!
My son finds reading challenging but loves stories and has a creative mind.
We needed to find a way to keep him interested in the joy of books.
Fortunately we discovered David Walliams and my husband reading a chapter to our son before bed has become a bit of a routine.
We all really enjoyed watching this musical and my son enjoyed seeing the characters from one of his favourite stories come to life.
I really recommend it.
People should do this because…?
It’s a nice way to ‘take the kids to the theatre’ from the safety of your home…
It mixes the days up from the usual TV programmes and movies…
You children can enjoy one of their favourite books as a musical and sing along…
It’s only available to watch for free until the end of May 2020, so don’t miss the opportunity!
This inventive tale of fun, friendship and the importance of kindness is adapted from David Walliams‘s biggest selling children’s book of 2016. – The Chichester Festival Theatre
