PLAYtime! – Hello Adam

We took the kids to watch Hello Adam today. Didn’t really know what the show was about but bought tickets long time ago based on the title of the production. We didn’t get very good seats because we made it in just as the show was starting. (Digression: I hate it when there’s a running event going on in the area when I’m at the Esplanade because the eating places are inevitably filled with the runners and we have to wait ages to get food!)

Hello Adam was all about movement! Using a range of props like balls of various sizes, blocks and slinkies, the performers moved around catching, throwing, jumping, running, etc. There wasn’t a storyline of any sort but the fast-paced performance was visually very entertaining for the kids.

Anya loved the bit where two performers were dancing around with ribbon sticks and I have pinky-promised that I will make one for her to twirl around with. Adam was under the weather and not as enthusiastic as usual but he sat through the entire performance without fussing and liked the bit where they lifted a big piece of cloth up and down like a parachute with the lights changing in colour. He was also happy to pick up the little coloured balls after the performance.

    My 3.5YO loved it and even my 14-month old enjoyed it and was clapping along! I thought it was simpler but better than Hello Paige (which was quite long ago lah). My 5.5YO was a little bored because I kept him from participating too much/loudly :p
