Tiana (Age 9) - ★★★★★

"It was really funny and I liked how the dragon copied Dave. I like how Dave put a unicorn horn on a boy in the audience and got the audience involved. It was really good from start to finish. I would definitely watch it again."

Amelia-Rose (Age 8) - ★★★★★

"I loved the unicorn!

I liked the story and I had lots of fun watching it.

My favourite show I've seen.

Double thumbs up!"

Jan (Age 11) - ★★★★

"I really enjoyed this show because of its wonderful beasts (puppets). I really liked the main character, the son of Chiron, but I thought the story was a bit to childish for me. It still was funny at parts and very interactive-which I think is a very good to have in a theatre performance. Me and my friends loved the dragon as it was massive. Overall a very entertaining show with absolutely amazing puppets!"

Stewart - ★★★★

"Well that was loud :)

There's some truly beautiful and outstanding puppetry on show in this production, it does really feel magical and you quickly get used to the puppeteers being there with them on the stage. It looks fantastic, especially that final creature that arrives on stage.

It's just a pity there isn't more of a story to the production and surely they could let the kid on stage keep the unicorn horn! A memorable show that personally I think could do with a bit more focused storytelling - and maybe a couple lower decibles (though I am very old!)"
