Chitty Chitty Tickethannypants
On Saturday after some extreme planning we made it to Milton Keynes Theatre to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I ended up sat between my brother and my Dad – probs not the best place as my brother didn’t appreciate me singing along (but I don’t care lol) but on the other hand my Dad joined in with me when we boo’d the Child Catcher. (Apparently I used to be scared of the Child Catcher on the film lol.)
I grew up on the film. The film was produced by Albert Broccoli who would later go on to Direct/produce a lot of the James Bond films through the 60s and 70s.
The two Vulgarian spies were hilarious, they were a great double act especially when they were trying to be English and then when one of the dogs escaped they filled the gap with practically no hesitation (One made a comment about that the dog was a Shih-Tzu the other then responded with something along the lines of “I’ve told you don’t call me Sue”, it was funny and seemed like it should fit so that was good lol.
Later in the year there is a performance of The History Boys by Alan Bennett and I’m kinda tempted to go see it but I don’t think any of friends will come and see it. Then again is going to the theatre on my own worse than going to the cinema on my own.
