To captivate an audience of small children for any length of time is impressive, to gain the undivided attention of an auditorium full of very young children is a feat. 'Jason' and 'Kylie' did this with ease, comfort and charisma.
A high-speed show full of acrobatics, circus tricks and jokes for all the family, there was never a dull moment. Able to keep their audience constantly alert and paying attention helped the show to run smoothly and they were met with a raucous reception. Their acrobatic skills impressed children and adults alike, and their natural ability to entertain made them the perfect duo for a children's show.
Obviously, as a children's show, this was not entirely directed at me or any of the parents in the room, but from what I could gauge, myself and the parents appeared to be enjoying the show almost as much as the children it was created for. It is definitely the sort of show I would have loved as a child and the reaction of the children in the audience said it all. They were impressed, amazed and completely captivated from the word 'go' and were all too willing to help out if they were asked.
Overall, this is a great show, ideal for children of any age, which showcases amazing talent as well as an affinity for entertaining. Don't miss it!
