|What they say about us:|
"I am a 5/6 teacher from a small, village primary school. ... I was at first a little worried about whether the children would follow the story. We had talked about it in the morning and seen the animated video, but I could see some puzzled faces over the plot complications. However, your version was just the perfect blend - enough actual Shakespearian language to get the flavour of the play, great knockabout scenes and wonderful songs that had us bouncing in our seats."
