Amazing .......... One of the best shows I have ever seen.

I was a little unsure at first thinking I was going to see a childrens show, but it captivated me from the opening scene.

Stunning colours, familiar music, wonderful performers and outstanding props. Definately a must see!

I am 11 and I went. I thought I wouldn't like it if I'm honest but it was a truley magical performance worth all the money. Loved every bit! The costumes were just too great.

This show was the first show i'd seen in Theatre, and I'd be very surprised if any other could beat this! I was overwhelmed by the whole show, crying pretty much from start to finish just through amazement at the whole thing!

The cast, costumes, backdrops were amazing, breathtaking... A show that I will definitely be recommending to everyone, and a show i would happily go to see again!

Brilliant Show.

My husband & I wish to thank staff for their help with the wheelchair he uses.They were all such a great help & very kind.

We were at yesterdays matinee & were dubious about it all but shall always look to see what goes on at your theatre in future.

Many Thanks again.

Excellent show...fantastic/outstanding is absolutely amazing ...first time at any West End show and what a brilliant choice. Would highly reccomend.

The brilliant introduction was completely spoilt by the ushers constantly racing up and down the stairs shining torches at people who were taking photos.When I complained they were impeding my view and I was missing so much of the presentation, I was told that it was their job to protect the copyright.What about my enjoyment as someone who had paid a lot of money to see the show?As this was the most important part of the show, with amazing scenes, I felt really angry and it completely overshadowed the rest of the performance, having missed the opening scenes.
