Croydon hosts popular kids TV show
Kid’s favourites Fifi and Bumble, Roary and Big Chris and the Bananas in Pyjamas will bounce on stage for a high octane show Milkshake!
The Channel 5 programme has been converted to the stage and features presenters Jen Pringle and Derek Moran alongside a full cast of your children’s favourite characters.
Jen, who joined the show in 2006, is excited about bringing Milkshake! live to Croydon.
She says: "The children recognise the characters from the TV but the point is we want to get them out of the living room and getting involved. There will be dancing and singing and we want everyone to get involved."
Different presenters will take the show across the UK for a 12 month tour, and Jen revealed she had been given the choice of where she performed.
She says: "I wanted to do some up near my home town in Yorkshire but I ‘m also going to new places like Cornwall. Croydon isn’t far from our offices in London and I really wanted to come out and entertain the children there."
Designed with pre-school children in mind, Jen believes there is enough in the show to entertain parents as well.
She says: "There isn’t time for them to get bored - there is just too much going on. I guess it probably has a limit of about seven years old, but big brothers and sisters are invited too and I’m sure they’ll enjoy it."
Put together by Channel 5 and Premier Stage Productions, it is the second time Milkshake! has gone on a live tour including new characters from the show.
