"We thoroughly enjoyed the performance and thought it was perfectly pitched for Primary aged children.
The level of interaction was perfect - enough to keep them engaged but not so much that it created silliness.
The actors were professional and the performances were very entertaining.
The whole experience was great value for money and introduced the children to classic literature in a memorable way
Thank you for a fabulous morning."

"A thoroughly professional and enjoyable performance, bringing the story of Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol' to life in an accessible way for a young audience.
Great opportunities for children to participate throughout the performance and excellent use of props and costumes to make the characters clear, colourful and humorous.
A fantastic opportunity for pupils to have a theatre experience within school and the interpretation of the text will support our classroom learning. Interweaving quotations from the text with modern language.
Would definitely book again and recommend to other schools- thank you!"
