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!
