What we thought

Magical outstanding DELIGHTFUL

Go and see this show for an explosion of FUN!

How do you keep a generation captivated by their screens entertained and focused for two hours? You make sure the production is too good to look away! From the moment I walked into the theatre my inner child launched from within and was set free.
