Everyone knows by now that we L.O.V.E Hi-5 in the Kidding Around Australia house! Alegría has been a fan for years and now we have another massive Hi-5 fan in Isaac – he has been dancing around the house shouting “Hi-5” for days!
We were lucking enough to be invited to the Hi-5 presents House of Dreams last Saturday at the Palais Theatre in St Kilda. The theme of the show is “Dreams”, with Chats (played by Jessica Harm) using magic to help Hugh (who replaced Stevie, who has hurt his foot), Dayen, Ainsley, Mary and Tanika explore and experience their favourite dreams.
The show was interactive with the kids helping Chats to catch dreams so that she could make them come true! With a little help from a huge dream catcher, the stage was transformed into magical worlds such as the jungle, under the sea, outer space and the wild west with the help of a computer-animated backdrop. The costumes were amazing and the props (including spinning beds) had the children transfixed!
As you would expect from Hi-5, the show was high energy and they sang all the catchy Hi-5 songs we’ve grown to love, including Alegría’s all-time favourite “Some kind of wonderful“.
The show is split into two x 35 minute acts with a 20 minute intermission separating them – perfect for a snack and a trip to the bathroom.
The kids loved House of Dreams, it was fun, energetic and ended with bubbles… always a crowd pleaser!
