We always have a wonderful time when the New Zealand Playhouse comes to visit. This year was outstanding! We loved that the humour appealed to all ages with a storyline that all of our children could understand, and relate to. So much energy and enthusiasm on the stage and the singing was wonderful.

We have always found your group to be professional. They are always on time, ready to go which makes such a big difference in the organisation of a big school. The kids were completely spell-bound from start to finish, and in this day of instant on screen gratification, that takes some doing. We have spent the rest of the term looking at story-book wolves, and my class of 7 year olds are now totally on the side of the wolves as a result of your performance– it was one of the best we have had–and the others were always excellent.
