User Reviews

James Harding (10Dec12): A thrilling atmosphere is created and a high standered show produced. There are a few unneccisary scenes however the ones that are needed are well thought out. At all times the audience is presently surprised.
Katherine Windsor (10Dec12): A superb pantomime with star peformances from David (Jack) and Julian(Old Ma Donald). The children are skilled with great enthusiasm. The play is tied together well and all audience members join in with the unforced involvment. The bad smells number and the dialogue before hand in the giants castle was particularly great. Although long winded at time it is great fun for all ages.
