Congratulations to the amazing cast and production team. What a wonderful show. Great adaptation, professionally delivered and above all, a lot of fun. Many thanks and would thoroughly recommend.


We LOVED your Gruffalo’s Child performance on Saturday. A huge thank you and congratulations to all involved, what a talented cast and imaginative production. So much more than the book.


My son who is 4 years old loved it. It was magical to watch his face light up and brought a lump to my throat and tears in my eyes. Well done and thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my little boy’s first experience of the theatre so very magical.


We absolutely loved your “Gruffalo’s Child” and absolutely want to know about every other show you do. The three actors were amazing and adorable. The set was gorgeous. What a marvelous experience.!
