"This act was a great culmination of content, mask and physical theatre skills. It wowed the students with the acrobatic tricks and fully engaged them in the action on the stage. The questions section involved very well formed and informative answers. A lovely experience. Thank you. 5 Stars!★★★★★

- The Total School Of Education, QLD

"Students in Years 9, 11, and 12 then had the privilege of workshopping many of the techniques and ideas explored in the performance, during a one-hour-long actor-led session. All such students have enthusiastically spoken of the workshop experience and how great it was to tackle team-building through a dramatic lens. It was a wonderful opportunity for students to engage with professionals in the field and to gain inside knowledge of the workings of this genre of theatre.
Cannot wait to have you back again!★★★★★
