WHAT THE PRESS SAY
"...the puppets, each operated by one or two real people, were very enticing. With great lighting effects, a really impressive stage set and some really brilliant puppetry at work, it makes a delightful way to spend an afternoon with little people. As Lola herself might say it was 'really, extremely excellent' and is also a great introduction for little ones, from age two and up, to the theatre."
"...the target audience of 4-7 year-olds was enthralled..."
"When the show finishes, my daughter, who hasn't spoken a word except to request ice cream during the interval, looks at me, blinks, sighs and said "That was SO lovely!" My sentiments exactly."
"Without giving too much away, this production is amazing. The actors and puppeteers are authentic, believable but effortless at the same time. What they do here with very little scenery also goes an extremely long way. There are a couple of surprises for the younger members of the audience which I will not reveal but all I will say is that my little boy's face lit up!"
"We saw the show on Friday and I was really impressed. My son can be a little nervous of new things but the puppets were so like the animation on CBeebies that he instantly loved it and was so excited. My daughter spent the whole time pointing out all the characters to me. I really recommend this show as I think every child watching loved it. If you're looking for something to take your little Charlie and Lola fans to this is an absolute winner. It is extremely really my bestest most favouritest play I have seen for ever and ever - as Lola might say."
"The play kind of makes you feel like you're IN one of the books which is obviously a really good thing!"
"It was brilliant. The boy was fascinated from start to finish and even we grown-ups enjoyed it...it was so good we're seriously thinking about going to see it again."
ASK THE AUDIENCE
"I have to say that this is the first time I have ever been moved to write to someone after seeing a theatre production. Last Friday, I took my 5 year-old daughter to see Charlie and Lola's Extremely New Play...She enjoyed it very much but I was quite simply astonished at how good it was. I was entranced by the stunning set design...The puppeteers were simply amazing...Congratulations to everyone involved with this fantastic show."
"I really recommend this show as I think every child watching loved it... If you're looking for something to take your little Charlie and Lola fans to in the school holidays this is an absolute winner. It is extremely really my bestest most favouritest play I have seen for ever and ever - as Lola might say."
