What I liked

The puppeteers where fantastic. Lively, bright, and clear in their emotions. I love watching puppeteers work and all four of these folks use excellent voices and characterization to bring these characters to life.

What I didn't like

I understand Mr Malcolm teaches in classes and individual settings, but I think in a stage setting with so much space and sound absorption he could be louder and more expressive.

My overall impression

This is an adorable children’s show with a very important message about the general anxiety kids would feel from time to time. Mr Malcolm has a great way with kids and gets his message through in a way that is relatable to both children and adults. Because he uses rhythm and music as his tools, the songs are cute and catchy. The puppets are wonderfully played with distinct personalities and the story is engaging with enough cheek for even the adults to get a laugh out of.
