Show was very well set out and entertaining. Very silly and perfect for kids and a laugh for adults as well. Overall absolutely brilliant!!!

I took my 7&9 year olds to see this. The venue is very small so everyone is really close to the performer and you feel really involved whether you participate on stage or not.
He is funny for both adults and kids, getting parents and kids on stage (if they are keen) to dress up and help him recreate his dreams. Great, silly, interactive fun.

We attended the the preview day of Mr Sleepybum; my 4.5 year old loved this and desperately want to go back again! She laughed straight through and had a great time telling others about it this afternoon.

A few thoughts:

- It’s very interactive and the comedy is quite physical. Adults and kids alike were having a great time. The silliness was perfectly paced so it kept the attention of my little one who otherwise struggles to sit through shows.

- It required adult volunteers with a good attitude to contribute in retelling Mr Sleepybum’s silly dreams. If that interaction isn’t for you, I’d suggest sitting middle or back row away from the edges/aisle. But please don’t let the idea of interaction put you off, as it’s very much about everyone laughing together with silliness rather than embarrassment and no one is forced to volunteer.

- It does get a bit exciting and busy with laughter and movement at times, including things being tossed around the room, shouting and cheering from the audience, and general silliness. It’s not a huge venue, so if you or your little one are very sensory sensitive to unexpected noise or touch, then those features are something to consider.

I think this would be a hit with the majority of 4-7/8 years (and was loved by those of us older than that!), but I’d say a confident 3 year old would also have a great time.

Looking forward to going back, maybe even tomorrow!

While kids erupted in bouts of laughter at the side-splitting dream scenes, adults found themselves chuckling at the subtly crafted jokes meant just for us, and gleefully joining in the onstage antics.
