    enchanting performance, suitable for all ages. I took a four and a half plus one and a half year old. They were both enthralled.

    As an adult, I thoroughly enjoyed the performance and the two children accompanying me aged 4 and 3 were enthralled. I believe that this was a good introduction to theatre and dance which is important in young people's development.
