"Thank you for a wonderful day! Everyone immensely enjoyed the whole school play at the start of the day and it got everyone excited and looking forward to their drama workshops. All of the classes thoroughly enjoyed their workshops and found them fun and engaging.
You were very organised, arrived in lots of time to set up and meet staff and were very accessible to contact. I would definitely recommend you to other schools. Thank you!"
Rachel Kinrade, Cavendish Primary School
"The children thoroughly enjoyed the performance.
All of Year 4 were focused until the very end, even the boys who 'hate' Fairy Tales!
Humour, pace and expression were repeatedly commented on by the children, with the finale being highly praised."
Angela Burke, Chandlers Field School

Sarah Cota, St James' Infant School

Emily Stather, St George's College
"Great fun and children were particularly impressed by the costume changes allowing such a huge number of characters.
The team were bang on time as always and the cost and professionalism were good. Hope to see you next year."
Jane Westmoreland, Dovelands Primary School
There is no maximum audience size for this production which means it is perfect as a treat for the whole school or to kick-start or round-off your Literacy Week/Book Day. To make a full day of it why not book some accompanying drama workshops..?
"Children enjoyed seeing all of their favourite characters. Very professional production kept at a fast pace to keep the children engaged.
Punctuality - excellent. Speed of setting up/dismantling - excellent."

"A fantastic show enjoyed thoroughly by all children and by all the staff.
Curriculum content was great as covered key phrases, characters, story content well.
Great use of interaction with audience - this surprised the children.
Props and set were good - very clear which character was being portrayed.
Lovely recap of each story at the end. Great use of voices to depict each character.
Very professional throughout and punctual.
Engaged all learners, including those with special educational needs."

"We loved the way you involved all the children and made them part of the performance. Talking about other traditional tales also was in line with the children's learning.
You made it really fun and the children and adults enjoyed it immensely."

An example of how to put on a play. Judged the humour just right
Hope to see you again soon."

"Highly engaging performance which the children really enjoyed. Clever use of props to bring the script to life and the performance was very energetic.
The play itself was entertaining and provided something to appreciate for all ages, cleverly combining elements of the traditional tales.
Looking forward to a great range of follow-up activities."

"Wow!!! What an amazing, vibrant performance that entranced and enthralled our pupils from the start.
Full of different characters (looks and personalities) the children could make lots of connections and cheer on their favourites.

10/10 from Bloxham staff and pupils. Thank you so much."
