Turn the Music Up! | Hi-5


Turn the Music Up! | Hi-5Photo – Cynthia Sciberras

So silly, enthusiastic, dazzling and catchy it's contagious and entertaining, Turn the Music Up! is the latest offering from children’s favourites Hi-5.

The music, dancing and singing is deceptively simple but also a fun take on songs for pre-schoolers. This up-to-the-minute show is up to the usual standards and Stevie, Lauren, Fely, Casey and Tim are appropriately smiley, animated, loud and jolly as they work around a brightly coloured set. Although, of course, being a Hi-5 show there are plenty of surprises in store for the audience of excited toddlers and understanding parents. There are chants, back-slapping, audience participation and bad jokes galore as the actors jump on the “Dancing Bus” in search of songs for the biggest, loudest, bestest and most fun house party in the world. Their journey takes them from the “Happy House” and the “Toybox” to a hoe-down on the “Hi-5 Farm” where they also “Swish, Swish, Swish” with fishing rods in the hope of catching some fish. After finding some L.O.V.E. and waking up Chatterbox (the puppet), the crew find themselves on Mars where they learn the “Martian Groove” and with the use of a wound up imagination return home to the happy house. Here the bouncing, giant bears, Jup Jup the Martian puppet and the general narrative come together in a party of genuine warmth from a group that duly delivers what its audience wants.

Endlessly light, this is Hi-5 and it’s all hit with no miss with a great pace and true pantomiming style. The result is a bubbly, hippy, happy day had by all. Even the adults walk away with infectious smiles.
