The show overall was great, I wouldn’t recommend it for little kids under 3, I think it is a little bit inappropriate. It is probably going to be scary for them and give them nightmares.

My first impression was this is going to be a really good show. The things that gave that away were the stage set up and the music. The stage setup was amazing, there was a very realistic toilet. They used a really clever projection and noise to make it look like Mr Twit was actually going to the bathroom.

The lights were really cool, they went from the stage over the audience and to the roof of the theatre. I liked how they changed colour during the show. The letters T W I T S were on the stage and each letter was in a different colour of the rainbow. The letters rotated in a circle on the stage. 

Mr and Mrs Twit are the main characters, they are silly, stinky, and dirty. They play mean tricks on each other. For example, Mrs Twit put worms in Mr Twit’s spaghetti, and he ate it. I don’t know if they were real worms. Then Mr Twit had to go to the bathroom and there were lots of farting noises. To pay Mrs Twit back for the worm spaghetti Mr Twit put a toad in her bed. 

When the Twits were doing tricks to each other it left me on the edge of my seat. I was nervous for the actors on the stage and thinking it wasn’t really a real fake eyeball, it was probably just a glass eye, right?

My favourite part was when Mrs Twit was lifted up with the balloons. The illusion was pretty good and it looked like real balloons. 

For somebody who enjoys Roald Dahl's book, The Twits, they would absolutely love the show. It left me feeling excited, nervous, a little bit disgusted and intrigued. I am giving it a 5-star review.
