” Hello my name is Mr Bloom and id like to come and see you soon”, we all know that line don’t we, but this time for Oscar he really did come and see him at our local Theatre in Reading.
Mr Bloom played by Ben Faulkes was joined on stage with his veggie friends, Colin the Runner Bean, the Wee MacGregors (the radishes), Joan the Fennel, Raymond the Butternut Squash, Margaret the Cabbage, and Sebastian the Aubergine. With an interactive story line including singing and dancing it’s a hit for Mr Bloom fans all around the country. Munchkin Entertainment new producers of children’s shows have been running Mr Bloom Live since early February and ends at the end of April and you can still currently find him in these cities here.
Oscar was mesmerised by the singing and dancing, although he got a little fidgety during the other parts. The story line was based around the preparation for the royal visit of King Edward, the first half lasts around 3o minutes with a 20 minute interval and a 30 minute second half. There were a selection of Mr Bloom goodies to buy and Oscar chose a hat, for anyone who knows Oscar that won’t come as a surprise as he is a big hat fan.
It was a lovely afternoon out and I think Oscar is even more of a Mr Bloom fan now he’s got his very own hat. For more information on the show see here.
