SEAN ATKINS Norwich Theatre Royal
Norwich Theatre Royal
The Theatre Royal underlined its reputation for attracting the big names with this visit by children's favourite Tractor Tom - star of CITV.
Farmer Fi and Matt were the only human members of the cast while ducks, sheep and a dog also feature. But talking Tractor Tom is the real star of the show - and how encouraging it is that an item of farm machinery should provide such entertainment for children in Norfolk.
The story moves swiftly from tidying up the farm to a bit of fun with pirates and then a happy conclusion.
Our three-year-old Esther knew what it was all about - joining in the songs, performing the actions and declaring the 'silly bits' to be her favourite part of the show.

But I can report that, after 90 minutes of fun, a devoted Tractor Tom fan went home tired but happy. And so did his daughter.
