Opening Night verdict ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Reviewers Eve and Maisy Powell
Following their award-winning production Gangsta Granny, Birmingham Stage Company return to Manchester with their newest David Walliams adaptation, Awful Auntie. This enormously entertaining tale of friendship, fights and not to mention frights is on at the Opera House until Sunday 24th June.
We sent our mini-reviewers Eve age 10 and Maisy age 7 and a half to give the show that’s been thrilling audiences around the UK their verdict.
I really, really enjoyed it, I thought it was really inventive and cleverly created, very funny and also very child friendly as the story was easy to follow.
I loved how they changed the scenery, I thought it was amazing. One of my favourite things was Wagner the owl puppet who was operated by Roberta Bellekom, it was so realistic and looked just like a real owl.
I would absolutely recommend Awful Auntie, it is great fun.
I really enjoyed Awful Auntie, my favourite part of the show was the little puppets, I loved them.
Aunt Alberta really made me laugh especially when Stella and Soot played tricks on her.
I would definitely recommend Awful Auntie to everyone especially children.
Packed with laugh out loud moments, a superb storyline chock-full of colourful characters brought brilliantly to life by a talented cast Awful Auntie is a perfect family show. With a running time of just over 2 hours including an interval this is another stonking hit for Birmingham Stage Company.
Awful Auntie is on at Manchester’s Opera House until Sunday 24th June tickets available here.
