Milkshake! Live

Location: The Mayflower, Southampton, Hampshire

By Tim Saunders

Fireman Sam, Noddy, Digby Dragon and a host of other popular cartoon characters visited The Mayflower, Southampton for just one day as part of their national Milkshake! Live tour.
The show sees Milkshake Monkey starring in his own musical. He is joined by Shimmer & Shine, Wissper, Nella the Princess Knight and the Floogals from the early morning children’s programme on Channel 5. They all help him to overcome his stage fright so that in the end his musical is a great success.
Infectious enthusiasm and happiness emanate from the cast, especially the two Milkshake! presenters, who are clearly delighted to be on stage. The audience is urged to join in and it’s great fun for all ages.
Our children’s faces really do light up when they see characters they recognise from television and they are sprinkled throughout the show to keep the attention. Detective Noddy is drafted in to find Milkshake Monkey when he goes missing. And when there is a fire and Fireman Sam arrives, my son Henry (3) is enraptured. “I like his dancing,” says Harriett (8).

Milkshake! Live is touring the UK but returns to Hampshire on Sept 22 at Kings Theatre, Portsmouth, then Bournemouth Pavilion on Oct 20 and Princes Hall, Aldershot on Nov 2, 2019.
