This cast takes us on a fantastic visual journey retelling a famous 56 year old children’s story book! Excellent use of your props and sets with seamless changes throughout your performance. Fantastic costumes. Really strong, clear expressive storytelling and use of your 88 strong cast! Congratulations!
The students should be extremely proud of their efforts for the past 8 months and seeing it all come together was amazing.
