Bump And Beyond


Hippity Hop Review

One thing that Darcy and I loved to do, is go to the theatre. I think it is important that families make time to see a show from time to time as it allows you to have quality time as well as help children to be creative, learn to communication and to be imaginative. So when Darcy and I had received a invite to review Hippity Hop at the Artsdepot I jumped at the chance.

Before the Hippity Hop starts you are greeted by the performers themselves, and everyone gets a colourful cap to wear. Just don't wear your cap back to front or your child will end up giving you the evils, apparently it is not cool to wear it that way and who am i to argue with a four years old.

The production focuses around a pram containing a baby who had rolled away from the its Mummy. Whilst travelling around colourful Hippity Hop town calling on various shopkeepers to see if they have seen the baby's missing mum.

Hippity Hop is different to other productions, there is puppetry, rapping and singing. It is a sensory delight full of colour, scent and sound. Which makes it perfect for children with autism.

Darcy and I favourite was The Soundman, I watched her really lose herself in the music and she has informed me that she wants all her friends to go and see it.

The production is aimed for 2 - 5 years old, but I feel it is perfect for all ages. We absolutely adored the production and would definitely see it again. I urge you all to do the same!

Hippity Hop is at the Artsdepot until the 31st December 2018, before going on tour in the New Year to The Burton Taylor Studio, Oxford (12-13 January), Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester (15-16 January), Gulbenkian, Canterbury (23-27 January), Theatr Clwyd, Mold (29 January – 2 February), Stratford Circus Arts Centre, London (8-9 February) and Southbank Centre, London (13-17 February)
