Junior review by Cora Dibdin

Sarah and Duck is a theatre show for children based on a TV programme on CBeebies. Sarah is a girl about seven years old and she has a pet duck called Duck. Sarah and Duck go on adventures together with their friends.

In this show, Sarah and Duck help Scarf Lady find her birthday by making a big top circus soiree.

The show is adults holding life size puppets. The people holding the puppets do not speak – the voices are recorded and are the same as in the TV programme.

Everyone found an exciting bit of birthday for Scarf Lady, and Duck chose to be shot out of a cannon. That was my little brother’s favourite bit.

I thought it was quite good and it would be best for around ages 2-8 and adults. It is very like the TV show, only six times longer. You get to know the characters quite well even if you haven’t seen the TV show.

The only bad part was that they didn’t include Plate Girl. She is one of their friends and is addicted to plates and carries one round everywhere.
