Red Riding Hood ‘Quite simply, they loved it! Your actors performed a lively, hilarious version of this traditional tale which had the children engaged from start to finish. The actors’ performances, and their interactions with the children, were spot on. They provided lots of inspiration for our literacy topic and also for our own drama/performance. The team organised themselves quickly and efficiently with their excellent set; they arrived on time and required no input from us, other than to provide an audience. They were great!’ – Sue Horton, Tadworth Primary School, Surrey
The Curse of the Mummy ‘The play was really interesting and entertaining. I liked that the children learnt about the history and that it was not just fictional. The small breaks during it helped to consolidate their knowledge. The staff were engaging and professional. The children enjoyed the workshops and they gave us ideas for teaching drama ourselves.’ – Elizabeth Price, George Spicer School, Enfield
