“Great show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

One of the best shows I have ever seen, my wife even cried over a pupet Horse LOL, she really did. A really good performance. well worth the effort to go and see it, you wont regret it. Even though it had a war theme it did not detract from the storyline, it did not come over as a war story, well not to us

“A Great Night of Theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

We went with much anticipation and were not disappointed. The play was less affecting than I expected and came across as a bit trite. Maybe that is a result of its origins in a work aimed at children. The puppetry on the other hand far exceeded our high hopes. Simply fantastic and like no other show I've ever seen. Superb singing too.

Although the story has some very close parallels with some familly history I wasn't moved to tears but perhaps I wasn't as surprised by the events as some have been.

We deliberately avoided the recent film and I would probably wait a while before seeing it as this worked so well on stage.

“Beware - Lack of legroom”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

First class performance, but the watch out if you are of average height, the seats in the Circle lack legroom and may spoil your enjoyment. Check out a seating plan website!!!
