    It was a great experience, my daughter loved every minute of it. Would love to see it again or other productions.

    Disappointed with the show. Massively deviated from the actual story. Just 3 people on stage making noises and using their arms. It’s just my opinion but it just seemed to me that this could have been thought up in a yr 11 drama class and no real money or effort has really gone into it

    I think the story was a little difficult to put on the stage. The performances were good but some scenes were difficult for kids to focus on. It was interesting to see the Stick Man touch, although I am not sure if it can be confusing for kids who are familiar with both stories. It would be great if we could get a sticker or so. I saw some communication materials in people's hands but it was crowded and I couldn't see how to get any souvenirs. The toilets were very crowded as well and I didn't see any children's toilets or any aid for children.
