Last night my daughter (aged 9) and I spent a wonderful evening at the Birmingham Hippodrome watching a very entertaining production of ‘Eye of a Storm’. This uplifting musical story tackled some thought-provoking topics including mental health, climate change, Newton’s laws of motion and the challenges of being a young carer in a little under two hours – it certainly gave us plenty to talk about on the train ride home. The production itself was slick and revolved around the cast taking various roles and playing multiple instruments throughout the night. The intimate setting of the Patrick studio gave added poignancy to the touching scenes as well as allowing the audience to join in the more comedic moments. Although I would say the story was easily accessible to children of 8 and over I feel teenagers would have been the best target audience to get the nuances and appreciate the classroom ‘banter’. We were definitely routing that the heroine (Emmie) would find a conclusion that allowed her to realise her dream whilst ensuring her mum was OK. A thoroughly enjoyable evening – just a shame it doesn’t have a longer run as I would have been tempted to go again with my science class!
