Black Theatre Live


Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears

“A fun, vibrant musical theatre.  The venue at the Warren was great and we were entertained by fantastic bongos and steel drums whilst waiting for the show to start. There were 8 animals on stage, a combination of puppets and people, great costumes and a lovely story with a moral angle all based around why the mother owl refuses to wake up the sun… and  ‘mosquito’. My 4 year old said ‘It was too much fun, I loved the iguana and the rabbit was so pretty.. but the lioness was really scary’ so the performers did a great job!  A lovely story delivered in a fun way with music and dancing, colours and energy. They engaged brilliantly with the audience and kept us entertained for the full 40 minutes. It seemed to end too soon. We would definitely recommend taking kids to see this fun show. Let’s hope they are back at the Fringe next year. Thank you Banyan Theatre Group.” Child Friendly Brighton & Hove
