Andy and Mike’s Tick Tock Time Machine
Back to the Future meets Bill and Ted in show that will tickle all age groups
This article is from 2012.
Although it’s probably fair to say that few, if any, of the youngsters sitting in this audience have ever heard of Back to the Future or Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, it’s a fairly safe bet their parents have. The laughs produced by the various references to these films certainly suggest so.
But don’t think for a minute that Andy and Mike’s Tick Tock Time Machine is a show that plays just to the grown-ups. There’s so much here for everyone – and not just the tiny ones who follow Andy Day on CBeebies. Older children are more than catered for during this hour of energetic time-travelling, that takes the intrepid duo from the Middle Ages right through to 2212.
An elaborate set ensures we always know exactly where (or more specifically when) we are, and the odd smattering of fun audience participation, coupled with Andy and Mike’s infectious enthusiasm, makes this one of the liveliest hours you’ll have at the kiddie Fringe.
