I had waited a long time to see this, and I certainly wasn't disappointed! It was pure Africa-the sounds, the colour and the amazing voices- it was just wonderful! Thankyou to everyone involved, from the players right throught to the lighting etc- a sheer joy!!!

Thanks to an amazing cast, fantastic orchestra and the most brilliant theatre set I have ever seen. You completely forget the animals are actually puppets the cast merge with them so well, hyenas and giraffes were my favourites, I laughed and cried. Just a magical afternoon. Would love to have heard more of Mustafa's voice was fab! Thank you to you all x

Absolutely blew me away!  I have never seen anything like it before in a theatre.  The colourful costumes, the cast and the entire production were amazing...whoever thought of the idea and put it together must be extremely talented.  Well done to all and I intend to see it again.

I thought that every actor on that stage gave 110% really enjoyed it. The costumes were suberb! being able to do all the actions and move around with spectacular jaw dropping masks was incredible.  The lyceum theatre never fails to impress.
