Hi-5 Holiday

We went to watch Hi-5 Holiday at Marina Bay Sands on Thursday and had a fun time! Anya wanted to wear a dress but also wanted to wear one of her Hi-5 t-shirts so she ended up with the tee over her dress and Jup Jup in her arms.

We got there about 5 minutes before the show started and we bought a $30 show pack which contained a towel, a castanet, bubble solution, a passport cover, a luggage tag and a magnet. I think it was pretty ok for that price. I didn’t want to spend $10 on a foam hand or on a foil balloon though.

Hi-5 Holiday sees Tim, Stevie, Lauren, Casey and Dayen embarking on a trip to find Hi-5 island. Along the way, they stumble upon many other different islands and there’s lots of singing and dancing involved. ¬†Our show pack came into use too! The kids pretended to be crabs by clacking with the castanet, bubbles were blown during an underwater scene and the towel was a dancing prop.

It was a very enjoyable performance and the cast really gave it their all even though the theatre was about 40% empty. I think the tickets were way too expensive so we were missing the energetic and lively atmosphere that you get with a sold out show.

I guess I’ll keep bringing Anya to watch Hi-5 until she decides that she has outgrown them because I like watching Hi-5 too!
