Bing Bang Bong

Nottingham Youth Theatre Inclusive Company have produced a pleasant show which is fun for all the family with Bing Bang Bong. We are introduced to Prince Charming, who having been kicked out of his own story, decides to make a feature in other well-known fairy tales such as Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel. Here we follow the stories of some of the most well-known fairy tales but with added twists and turns, aiming to bring children together through their love of these traditional stories.

An entertaining show for all the family, I look forward to seeing what the future holds for Nottingham Youth Theatre Inclusive Company as they continue to work with these young children in order to build their confidence for the future.

For a young children's theatre company this show has a lot of promise. The stories may not be original but the enthusiasm and passion the children have on stage spreads out into the audience, causing us to get swept up in all of the excitement and makes it a pleasure to watch.

By watching them on stage you could see that this company has a great impact on the lives and confidence for these young children, which consist of young people with and without additional learning disabilities around Nottingham, and that is one of the things that make this show such a pleasure to watch. This was shown through the joy of the kids in the audience, who cheered and danced along, wanting to contribute and be a part of these traditional tales.

The stand out mention has to be for Prince Charming, played by Theo Swan, who carried the show through his witty remarks and interactions with the audience. His stage presence commanded the attention from the audience and brought the show to life as he directed us through the trials and tribulations of the fairy tale characters on stage.

An entertaining show for all the family, I look forward to seeing what the future holds for Nottingham Youth Theatre Inclusive Company as they continue to work with these young children in order to build their confidence for the future.
