Review: Wally Watthead and his Lost Glow (Manila Show, 2014)

Wally Watthead and his Lost Glow

 Me, ReigningTatay, #FabSkye, Wally Watthead and Mama Chubby

Our family was invited to catch the press premiere of Wally Watthead and his Lost Glow at the PETA Theater yesterday morning. I was so excited when I got the invite because our family loves theater shows and broadway musicals!

But I was a bit skeptical at first to bring the baby. Although Wally Watthead is a magical theater show for the kids, I am not sure if my 8 month old baby could actually enjoy it. I was even afraid that she’ll get frightened with the sounds or the magical show itself.

But I was wrong!

SHE. LOVE. IT.

As in she super love it. She was clapping the entire time. And she would laugh so loud every time the other kids would laugh. And she was watching the entire thing. She’s awed by the lights and the colors and Wally, himself.

She was giddy when the entire theater was showered with bubbles. And she was enjoying every minute of it, like she could totally understand everything.

We watched with other kids, toddlers actually, and I could see that they were enjoying themselves so much like the #FabSkye. Wally Watthead did magic tricks and entertained us all with Simon the Simcard, his bestfriend and Polly the Picture, his girlfriend. :)

It was the perfect combination of magic, colors, props and acting. Wally Watthead was able to catch every kid’s attention because of his fun antics. I love the way they created Simon the simcard and Polly the picture. It was interactive. Although it was a one-man act, it doesn’t feel like it because he was able to interact well with those 2 other characters. Perfect execution of technicalities. :)

Wally Watthead has everything a kid loves – magic, colors, talking cell phone and photo frame, bubbles, confetti, cute costumes. They have everything covered. :) And they were able to capture the hearts of the adults as well. If you could only see my sister’s face while watching. Hahahaha! Nakanganga pa at tawa ng tawa. :) It was entertaining.

After the show, the members of the press and the bloggers were able to have a short talk with Janne Raudaskoski (Wally Watthead) and his interpreter. Both are actually super nice.

I’ve learned that they already did Wally Watthead in Finland, London, New York and China. Wow! Wally is such a jetsetter. :) They also discussed some of the technical aspects of the production – like the fact that they need 3 laptops to keep the show running, that Polly is actually an Finnish actress and her piece was pre-filmed, and that Simon’s voice is an actual person and it was also pre-recorded. But the very smooth execution is what makes this show extra special. Grabe ang execution as in. You have to watch it to understand what I’m talking about.

I highly recommend this show to all you mums out there! :) And I encourage you to introduce your kids to theater and the arts early. Studies proved that early introduction to the theater boost literacy and cultivate curiosity. I am so glad that the PETA Theater is actually trying to come up and bring shows like Wally Watthead here in Manila for the younger kids. Sabi nga nila, start ‘em early!

I am excited for the upcoming show line up of the PETA Theater. I’ll definitely to bring the #FabSkye to another one.
