What an amazing show. My 9 year old daughter loved it, she was in awe. Great costume, acting in fact everything. The theatre is great, staff friendly and easy to get to. Loved it. I'm seeing it again with my school this week!

What a fabulous show An modern twist on an iconic story. Singing, dancing, sets, costumes and story lines were just amazing. We also booked a pre-theatre supper with desserts and coffee in the interval which added to the experience. Can thoroughly recommend it!

To be honest there are no bad seats and for children's plays the front seats are magical for them. Personally we always choose 5th 6th row back, a much better view of both sides of the stage which is a small issue at the... More
