We were so pleased to have every show in Edinburgh as a relaxed performance, which meant we had all ages and abilities helping Grandma and Grandpa Frog on their search to find the perfect present for their Grandfrogs. Thank you to everyone who came along, tweeted us and tagged us on Instagram-We loved seeing all of your photos and comments and we hope to be taking Ribbet Ribbet Croak on the road again very soon. Do let us know if you want us to come to your school or community centre to perform the show, and we run workshops too!

We also did a lot of tourist style exploring as we went to the top of Arthurs Seat, tried a fried mars bar for the first time (we wouldn’t recommend it!) and also celebrated Emily’s birthday!
We also saw some great shows too. We love supporting new and dynamic work, as well as seeing comedians, magicians, circus acts and theatre shows. On average we saw 2-3 shows a day! Here are some of our top picks to look out for in the future (in no particular order) :
- Pete Firman - Trix
With tricks that will make you shout ‘HOW DID HE JUST DO THAT?!’ really loudly, this man is not just a very talented magician, but also very funny. His stand up alone is better than most, and his tricks are second to none.
- Showstoppers - The Improvised Musical
Incredibly talented, we saw both the adults’ and kids’ version of this show. Soniya even saw the adult show twice, it was that good! With a different set of themes/ideas every night, and improvised from scratch, this company is definitely one to look out for. The children’s improvised musical is also just as funny, with the show being set in a sweet shop, a fish bowl and many many other hilarious and inventive places.
- Shlomo - #NewRules
Soniya did a beatboxing workshop a few years ago with Sholmo and ever since then has been hooked on his incredible talent for creating songs with just his voice. We had a Moulded night out to his show at The Underbelly and it had us nodding our heads to the beat and staring in awe (while also attempting to beatbox on the way home…badly!)
- Colin Hoult/Anna Mann – A Sketch Show For Depressives
A spontaneous theatre trip turned out to be one of the many highlights of our Edinburgh experience this year. Hard to describe in just a few sentences, this show was funny, random and surprisingly good.
- Sleeping Trees – Sci Fi
Theatre friends of ours, Sleeping Trees always produce hilarious work, and this was no exception. If you ever get the chance to check them out, and fancy a laugh then go and support this brilliant company.
- Head First Acrobats - Elixir
Talented, funny, and not too bad on the eye these incredible acrobats had us laughing, gasping and whooping at their piece about a zombie attack. Another spontaneous trip (to celebrate our director’s birthday!) we were pleased with our random pick and would definitely recommend them.
- Water on Mars - Juggling
Words to describe this show: Amazing, incredible, jaw dropping, mind blowing, overwhelmingly brilliant… etc etc etc. If you want to see a great juggling show, go and support these guys.
- Dansema Dance Theatre - Puzzle
One for the tots and tinies, this show was utterly gorgeous. From Lithuania, this company have produced a clever, endearing, very cute show which we would highly recommend for anyone who loves work for very young audiences, or has little ones themselves!
- Bootworks – The Many Doors of Frank Feelbad
Our theatre friends Bootworks have made another great show, this one tackling the slightly darker subject of loss. Heart-warming and eye-watering, this show is absolutely fantastic for ages 4+ and their families and is deeply sensitive in its portrayal of Franks loss.
- Sirqus Alfon – I Am Somebody
You may not have heard of this company before, as we didn’t before we went to Edinburgh, but this show, full of lasers, animation, music and lots more, is definitely one to watch out for. Very random but very good!
