“Beautiful and Magical”

The puppetry, design, theme and portrayal was beautiful and magical. My granddaughter, aged 4, loved it and understood that it was about the imaginary and magical nature of books. I would definitely go again and bring my four year old grandson as well.

A Beautiful Show Kids and Adults Could Enjoy!

This was a beautifully produced show that both little kids and adults could enjoy. The whole theater experience was very well-designed for little kids, with a little arts and crafts and songs beforehand, and a reading of the book ahead of time. All in all, I thought this was a great experience and nice way to introduce kids to the theater.

Made for a Really Nice Afternoon

Lovely, lovely show. The structure of the whole thing, with activities outside, reading the story before the performance, and the performance itself made for a really nice afternoon. I was thrilled my 16 month old was so engaged through the show. Thank you!
