REVIEW: THE LIGHTHOUSE
By Charlotte Chambers
Adelaide Festival – 25 Feb – 7 Mar
Head out from the light and into the darkness in a magical exploration of Immersive sound, light and music presented by South Australia’s Patch Theatre and directed by Geoff Cobham.
Throughout The Lighthouse’s immersive experience the crowd is taken on a roaming journey through the historic Queens Theatre, where a different presentation of light, sound and story is waiting around every corner. The show is utterly interactive with patrons handed a series of lights and lasers, that connect you through the adventures of extraordinary Lighthouse. Children are the gatekeepers of a number of light makers including a magical sphere that is synchronised and miraculously turns off leaving you all in total darkness… albeit for a brief but exciting moment.
The journey of light and sound takes you from one interactive experience to another with children chasing light beams, jumping through lasers, walking through air balloons and catching illuminated bubbles. The Lighthouse will leave those young and old completely awestruck with the amount of visual WOW moments the show has to offer.
The Lighthouse is suitable from 9 months to 90 years and is exhilarating to the very last laser.
A completely illuminating experience – FIVE STARS
