What schools are saying

The show was fabulous. Great acting, great singing and what a powerful message, which I followed up with real pictures yesterday at assembly. We were all captivated. Being Eco week, it was all very relevant too. Thank you very much indeed for securing funding from SSE.”

Bold, yet contrasting costumes and scenery captured everyones attention. Educational messages were delivered in a clear, concise, entertaining and humorous style that captured the audience’s attention of the children young and old.”
