We invited a preview audience of children from some local schools,
and invited them to write a few lines for entry to their school
newspaper. Here are the things they said:
Funny jokes, great puns, crack of an ending. I enjoyed the show.

I really enjoyed this outstanding performance. I found it funny amusing, sad
and outrageous. The performing was great and the choreography was super.
I really enjoyed this performance.
Michael, Year 8, St Patrick's School, Kaiapoi
It was really funny, and when they have to work together they do it really well.
They say all their words clearly. There was great music and there was great humour.
The play goes back to the past at some times and was really awesome. I think this
play is for people between 8 and 60.

It was a very humorous play with great jokes and costumes. I enjoyed how they engaged
the audience with the singing. I really enjoyed the guitarist and how she had an important
part even though she wasn't acting. It was very good how we were watching them do a play
about them doing a play. An awesome play for 11 year olds and up. Completely worth seeing!
Loburn School, Rangiora

It was good. It was funny. I liked the funny songs. Good costumes. Good stories. It was
noisy (in a good way)
Lots of fun and enjoyment with a decent amount of laughs that can be had by all ages.
Although there were a few forgotten lines, it did not detract from what was a great performance,
displaying the wide range of the young actors abilities.
