Programme Information


Rave Reviews:-. ‘This is a wonderfully energetic and engaging one hour. It is also the most fabulous and dynamic teaching tool that covers so many aspects of the curriculum through such a physically creative and artistic performance. The actors so obviously enjoy and have fun with their work and the constant surprising ways in which they use props. The students were all buzzing as they exited’ Fiona Keith-Kirk H.O.D Drama Pakuranga College “The students were captivated by the show, and it was thoroughly enjoyed by staff too! The structure of what you presented was most informative, the humour delightful and well-sustained from start to finish, and the energy levels throughout, simply outstanding. The range of themes, characters and performance styles ensured that you never once ‘lost’ the audience.” Helen Dallaston-Year 10 Dean, St.Cuthbert’s College
