Review: The Three Little Pigs at the Palace Theatre

George Stiles and Anthony Drewe's musical adaptation of The Three Little Pigs provides bucket loads of fun for all the family. 

It's so nice to see a children's musical with a commendable original score featuring melodies that you will find yourself humming on your way home (days later I'm still singing the Huff and Puff song).

It's also remarkable to see a cast of such high calibre performing the piece. Fresh from reaching the semi-finals of Britain's Got Talent, Alison Jiear showcases some powerhouse vocals. Olivier Award-winner Leanne Jones shines throughout whilst West End Frame Award-winner Daniel Buckley is always on point and giving his all. 

Musical theatre performer Taofique Folarin takes to the stage with great charm whilst Blue singer Simon Webbe seems to be having the time of his life as the Big Bad Wolf - the kids certainly loved his mischievously over the top portrayal.

I think it's so important that family theatre continues to move forward. The Three Little Pigs ticks all the right boxes for a first theatrical experience - hats off to Stiles and Drewe for having a little fun with the story and creating a high quality new musical. A fabulous family treat.
