Barnum (October 2016) “We went to see Barnum last night - it was utterly superb! Colourful, lively, captivating and highly professional. It was so wonderful that I was humming the tunes when I went to bed and my feet were dancing in bed, so I didn't get to sleep for a while! Thank you to all involved - you have shared a lot of joy!

Oliver! (April 2013) “Awesome show tonight. Complete chance that I came along with the kids after seeing a poster in town.
