The story was lovely and relevant to kids and adults alike. The actors were awesome (--super thank you for coming out after the production and wishing a Happy Birthday to our grandson). The theatre was lovely, and the theatre staff were friendly and helpful. All in all, it was a wonderful experience for us and for our six year old grandson. Thank you to the Smeds and Smoos production family!

The staff at the theatre were great and the show first class ------------------ Surely you need to know what was bad ? Not clever to deny custiomers to complain ------------------------------------- The booking system was long winded and faulted several times. The booking took three times so assuming Headout are responsible for this area, and you get other complaints

My son was asking me what time it was after 30 minutes so it didnt really hold his attention for the entirety. Perhaps more panto stuff like the water pistols at the audience and stuff like that. I give it 6/10 I could tell a lot of hard work had gone into this though. All the best, G.Freilich

Overall it wasn't a bad show, the performers were very good and it was good that they showed them "becoming the characters" so the kids understood they were people dressed up but it was lacking a bit of depth and my 4yr old lost interest early on. The planet-visiting scene also went on for a while (close to the book) but it did seem a little too long. We bought the cheaper tickets at £12 and I'm glad as if we had paid more it would have been quite overpriced for what it was. The venue were helpful as we were not sent our tickets and staff really nice. I think the show could be better with more detail.

Smeds and Smoos show was great - that's what the positive review is for. Ticketing experience was really annoying- why do you make people "reconfirm" tickets that they've already paid for? Just email the ticket as soon as payment is taken
