YOUNGSTERS are being invited to Come Out to Play so they can watch some of their television favourites on stage.
Milkshake!, the popular children’s show on Channel 5, will be coming to Potters Bar next month to put on a live production as part of a national tour.
Presented by Derek Moran and Olivia Birchenough, the show will be all singing, all dancing and will feature favourite characters such as Noddy and Bananas in Pyjamas.
Derek, who has directed and choreographed the show, said: “It is really fun and quite magical for the children.
“They watch these characters every day and it is like they get to meet their idols.”
The milkshake! Live tour! will be coming to Wyllyotts Theatre on June 8 and there will be plenty of audience interaction.
There will be a Push and Play theme where the youngsters have to get the stars out of the television but make sure they are back in time for the show the next day.
“The difference with a live stage show is you get an instant reaction,” Derek added.
“When you are talking to a camera you do not get an applause.
“I love being on the road and getting to see different places and meeting new people.”
The presenter said that the live production has had to be extended due to popular demand and will not end its run until August.
“We did not know how successful it would be.
“This is definitely our most successful tour to date.”
