A really fun afternoon tea. Blue candy floss that tasted like pineapple, eggs that are made from chocolate with a delicious mousse, sandwhiches that look like roast beef but taste of chocolate. Chocolate tea and pretty milkshake bottles in a comfortable,relaxed environment. Would definitely recommend.

It was a very good show overall, however I give 3 stars because it was something I wouldn’t go back and watch it again as well as if you have to watch only one show others are definitely worth it more e.g. Les miserables !

The once I watched this play it was similar to the film of it. The character acts and story goes very well and it's inspirational with story skills.
