“christmas has arrived”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Cinderella was a wonderful magical pre christmas treat
for my seven year old friend . A modern interpretation with local references, plenty of laughs, involvement in the play for the children in th audience, a bit of a moral twist and even a tear shed. Wonderful

“Fantastic”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Wanted to go to this theatre for so so long as heard so much about it. Certainly lived up to expectations. An experience not to be missed, so different from a normal theatre, you really feel involved in the play.
