“Refreshing and innovative it certainly ignited my imagination”
Behind The Arras

“As soon as we entered the theatre we were greeted by friendly staff who helped a large group of us swiftly to our seats. As we all nestled in as the performance began, using the colours sheets provided, which was a great touch. The group of 19 3year olds found the performance so engaging through the use of physical theatre and circus acts, kept all of our children on the edge of their seats! The staff felt ‘What the moon saw’ effectively merged together the short stories of Hans Christian Anderson in a new exciting way, which our first time theatre goers loved. We also had the chance to get up close with the set, props and interact with the actors. This gave the children a great opportunity to experience the environment fully. All in all it was very magical performance that staff and children thoroughly enjoyed”.
